A quieter week, with fewer lessons than normal, only the memory of the summer (although I'm sure we'll get at least two days' summer yet before winter sets in again :D . Some guitar practice, a fair bit of reading -at the moment I'm reading The Honest Look by Jennifer Rohn, which starts gently and builds up as it grows in you, a young female scientist's story. Also Hitch-22 by Christopher Hitchens, poignant and full of pathos as you would expect. And a couple of trashy Dragonriders of Pern books.

Guitar-wise, beginning to study again Leo Brouwer's 'Decamerón Negro'. Beautiful music to which I don't think I did justice the first time I played it, years and years ago.

And now that I'm not having to get up at 5:30 in the morning I seem to be sleeping 9 hours every night. Enjoying it while it briefly lasts....
