Excitement is building!

I am very excited to be departing for Harpa 2015 - Scotland!  I will be in the impressive company of 14 other delightful people and I can't wait to get on the road! I'm throwing the last few things into my luggage, nestling my harp into its travel case and preparing to depart. 

We'll post some from the road - but remember we're on vacation so we'll post when we can and what we've got - and we'll look forward to telling you about it when we get back!

Sometimes you just want to control the clock

I never did get to post last week.  It was one of those weeks that was just too full. Something had to give. 

Last week, I chose to practice. Just like everyday, I specifically allotted time to spend at my harp.

Because the week was busy, I had to chivvy time out of other places to get things accomplished.  

I chose to practice. Or more accurately, I protected the practice time and let other things slide.   

I chose to not let practice get shifted off the schedule.  I cut back on other things - sleep got short shrift too, and I didn't write to you.

I'm happy with my choice.  I'm equally happy that I consciously put practicing on the front burner.  
Hopefully the coming weeks will be calmer and more controlled! And I hope when presented with the options, you chose to practice too!
