For the most part, I love my job.  I love being a musician and making good music.  I love digging into the music and finding the exquisite moments in the text and the music.  But every once in a while I really hate this business.  Every once in a while people are so damn opinionated that they can't see past their own nose.  They can't see the strengths of their colleagues or the potential of their colleagues students or anything that might possibly go against their opinion.  I can't stand people that think they are the only one capable of doing what they do and everyone else...well...sucks.  For heavens sake, we all have something to offer and we are all good at something so maybe if we work together, we might make something really great!  Argh...that's all.  :)

Sometimes I feel like life is passing me by because I'm always working.  And this semester will be no different...I'm playing 14 (yes, you read right) 14 recitals...on top of everything else.  Don't get me wrong, this isn't really a complaint but, it's going to be a crazy semester.  Here's to insanity!
