So. Yesterday was a whirlwind for me. I slept poorly on Saturday night. Eileen and I walked to the morning church service. I am thinking I need to get there earlier and do more playing because the last two Sundays I have felt a bit blurry. Fortunately, I didn’t commit the major faux pas of the previous Sunday.

I am still pondering how yesterday went. Last night I was mostly thinking like a freshman and replaying my mistakes. I didn’t nail the organ pieces the way I wanted to. But with a dash of willed perspective I could see that both the church service and recital went very well.

But it wasn’t until this morning that I realized how complimentary people were to me all day. I just didn’t hear it. I’ll write more about it, I’m sure. But for today my task is once again to try to relax and gain as much perspective as I can.
