Thanks bunches to (anonymous to everyone else but not to me) C.O.V. member.
btw: I have now played the clarinet three times in three days. apparently i'm going to play in church next week: just two of the 6 studies in english folk song, but playing nonetheless. i don't sound as horrible as i expected. my standards must have been lowered by 18 months away from the instrument.
It's weird to be playing again--and I don't think I'll keep it up because, frankly, it makes my arm hurt. anyone ever wondered why their arm hurts? no...well...mine hasn't since i quit, but now it does again.
in addition, i have a new scar on my lip, and i hate that feeling.
anyway. there you go. i've been playing the clarinet. it's weird.
thanks again COV #1!!
