I spent last week visiting a friend and working at the Huntington Library, and it was fabulous! I learned new stuff, was reassured by learning some other stuff, did some organizational work, and read really neat texts.
Best of all, I learned there are some manuscripts I could look at. And they live in the British Library, so I'll be able to look at them when I go there!
I got back yesterday evening, learned that we were expecting a big snow storm, so went and got gas for the snow thrower, and got a pizza. Already this morning I've cleared my drive, so the gas was a good investment! (I might have had enough, but you always want to have plenty!)
This week, I'm going to be buckling down and writing, writing, writing. I'll also be practicing, of course.
I finished the Coursera music theory course, and am now working my way through the textbook materials for the NWU music theory course. Fortunately, I have friends in the music department for whom music theory is second nature, so one has been checking my homework and helping me with things I find difficult. It's fascinating and fun so far.
