Nothing terribly exciting to write about, but it’s all been shifting practice from first to second position, and making sure I have that motion hard wired into my brain again. In this regard, I feel a bit peeved that I have to do this again, but my shifting is becoming more confident.  The other thing I am focusing on is keeping my left hand position firmer (but not rigid) so that my thumb can lead the shift accurately.  I had acquired the habit of aligning my thumb to 1 in all positions, not just fourth.
