Well, despite all the things that have been going on in my life, the one thing I can control is my reaction to them. I’m not better yet by any means, but I decided I’d had enough rest and what I really needed was to move around a bit. So, I picked up the cello and worked through the first two bars of the Trio section. There are still two staccato segments where my LH is uncomfortable. I’m going to be digging in to that tomorrow.

Whatever else I may say here with regard to my personal life, there is an unstated assumption that I’m still practicing. The 100 days in a row of practice that marked the start of my amateur study of cello still motivates me to push through the excuses and at least do something.
