Weekly review: Week ending January 7, 2011

January 8, 2011 - Categories: weekly

Relearning the piano. It's interesting. I can remember playing better than this. Now I'm re-learning how to play these pieces, going, "Ahh. That feels familiar. And then there should be this bit over here - yes, that's right." On the other hand, I read notes a little bit faster now than I did before.

Getting well. A persistent cough and some sniffles, but definitely better than last week.
