tail end

Enjoying these last few days of summer holiday (if not, alas, of summer, although there should be a few nice days left, shouldn't there) before I have to get back to the grind. Getting up at 9 is so much more in tune with my inner rhythm, say, than getting up at 6 or, on Tuesdays as from next week, 5:20 am (probably; I haven't received my timetables for that school yet so I don't know yet).

Currently studying my old teacher Jack Duarte's 'English Suite' -oddly maybe the only one of his major works I never studied with him. Also looking again at Benjamin Britten's 'Nocturnal' Op 70 (extremely intricate and difficult but the work, in truth, that made me want to study guitar), now that I have been doing 'Come Again', the song by John Dowland it is based on, together with Verity. I feel I want to play those two extremely British works next year, let's see whether I can find myself a venue or two to play them.
