All at the Zedery look forward

Wink is, I think, on the verge of getting a social life that doesn’t involve us. That is a very good thing. She’s happy to be introduced as my sister but she doesn’t need to be prejudged that way.

Someone she knew was going to stay with a relation in Yagnub and, since it fitted in with her plans, she gave him a lift from Wiltshire to here. Then she kindly drove him to the station to catch his train home. She’d befriended the relation he stayed with and invited her to lunch today. She’s great company and has lots of friends, so will introduce Wink to people I don’t know. I’ve never been part of Yagnub society particularly, which is a pity – I tended to gravitate towards the nearest village as well as here, then to Norwich. So I may expand in her wake – she’s far more outgoing than I am and is good at making friends. I’m a bit more introverted, though not less friendly.

A busy few days coming up, starting with an appointment near Norwich at 9.30 am tomorrow. Eek. I’ve set my alarm for 7.30 and will scuttle around a bit. Family stuff after that. I so appreciate being a bit busy.

This evening, I’ve been playing the clarinet, with a bit of an effort as my embouchure is shot to pieces after a long hiatus. Tim has been playing the guitar, inspired by me. We are determined to play more. We both love it, if we play well. But it takes a lot of work to get up to the standard that pleases us (pleases the player, that is; the listener is more indulgent).

    Sorry, I can not explain why, but to learn that You and Tim start to play music, no matter whether each & single or together, does gladden me. I can watch first hand the effects of making music on my partner, who some time ago started playing piano (again). Has something meditative too, is rewarding, I can not properly express it, sorry. It can be so joyful.
    Hope all went well, in all respects.

      Making music is good, and easy. Making good music, though, isn’t easy. Which may be why I don’t try so much nowadays.

        you can just pick it up, though. It takes a lot of work for me. if I don’t do the work and play poorly, I won’t play well. I think this is my last chance and, if I don’t take it, I might as well give up.
