Still trying to get to be able to pay my bills until the schools I teach guitar at start paying me (that's at the end of October...)
Only one new private pupil this autumn but losing a couple of existing ones (health, moving away...).
Still have that cough, a month and a half on. Maybe I should get a doctor's appointment.
Schools started, the rientro wasn't as horrible as I anticipated, although there are bits of school bureaucracy to make me go mad, waiting in the wings.
Still pondering on what I want to play next year, reading and revisiting some music I've played in the past (at this point in life there's rather a lot of it). Not doing much 'actual' guitar practice, though. Beginning to step up that.
The news from the outside world as depressing as always; don't even want to mention the 'B' word or even less the 'T' word but reading the news it does feel like the Everett many worlds was true and we've strayed into the wrong timeline.
Gosh, this update looks a bit grim. My life doesn't really feel like that at the moment, I fully realise how lucky I am, I do what I like and am reasonably good at (with all the practical problems that ensue but, hey). I have good friends and an amazing social life. I generally have good health (although I'll have to have that cough looked into). It's ok, we can do this.
The icon on this post is an analemma, the cover for one of the editions of 'Anathem' by Neal Stephenson -another many worlds story set in Arbre, a world 'like Earth but not Earth' where I have been living in my dreams for the last eight years or so.
