How is it already Sunday night? I do hope I can get myself back into a schedule with the holidays behind us.
When do you take down your tree? I wait until Epiphany, the twelfth day of Christmas, which is tomorrow. I also don’t put up my tree until about 2 weeks before Christmas. I feel like Christmas is so rushed, put up the tree right after Thanksgiving dinner, strip down all the beautiful ornaments on the 26th. Too soon, too soon.
I practiced piano last night. I haven’t really tried to play since I was young, 13 or 14 years old maybe. I found that I still can read music easily, but I was stunned at how good I am! Not to brag, I’m still pretty terrible, but much better than I would expect after a 20 year hiatus. I always thought I was a poor player, but now I wonder. If I can do this now, with no practice, maybe I was just too far into my own head to know how much potential I may have had. I’m going to keep practicing, now that my teenage insecurity is gone.
Spinning took place today, too, for the first time since July. Interesting. I think this is a year to wrap it up, organize it, resolve the unresolved.
