Gratitude - Day 71

I'm grateful for music. Again. But I REALLY needed reminding of this as I sat at the piano yesterday for countless hours, often in what felt like a daze thinking, "I don't even know where to start!" I'm drowning a bit in new music at the present moment - so many notes, so many ornaments, so many words, so little time! But the beautiful thing is that it IS music and each note is a gem, - from Handel to Vivaldi to Chausson to Bellini to Gershwin - so it's inspiring work to say the least. I just need to stop feeling overwhelmed and dive in, wasting no precious time. (And here I thought, after Ariodante it would all be downhill this season! HA!) Let the games begin!
