A personal success at work today. The conditions were ripe to get lost in anger, but by finding my breath, working with the AT directions, and taking a walk, a better way was found to resolve the situation. My energy was conserved and no great toll taken on my body.
I had class with David tonight. My energy was low by this time, and I seemed to want to have something done for me or to me. Towards the end he made a statement that I need to examine over time. He suggested a variation on the adding in a rest exercise of Pedro de Alcantara, where I would play the bass note, rest, play the 3 notes of the tremolo, and rest before the next bass note, and so on. I worked with this at home and found that I was able to maintain a better overall sense of myself & while my hands were playing.
Now to address my low energy, but heading off to bed.
