boring tales of daily life in kentish town

Maybe I've found a way to endure the crushing boredom of the gym. Reading from the iPad while on the cross-trainer and the bike beats watching the numbers on the machine or, worse, watching Ann Robinson or any Jerry Springer wanna-be on the big TV screens. Now for the music issue -they issue tabloid music at a volume that can often drown what I'm listening to, even with in-ear earphones...

Ran into [profile] enlyyl on my way to the gym. Don't think I'd ever seen her in the open daylight! if we except the Bring and Buy Sale.

Rodrigo's 'Concierto de Aranjuez' was on the radio at the Lit Café the other day which made me think ... how difficult it is (not the bit that everybody hears and everybody's covered) and that I used to play it. Was playing around with the piece yesterday and can remember and play quite a bit of it but some bits do seem to have become impossible or almost -but then they always were fiendishly difficult, particularly the third movement. Would have to spend months working on it but then, what chance playing that thing properly, with orchestra. Time and energy probably better spend on other things...
