I’m Overwhelmed

August 21st, 2015 Posted in Uncategorized

I have so much to read and process before beginning the next chapter of my book I’m freaking out. I made a list so I can cross things off as I go along. I’ve found having a big piece of paper with each thing written on it in great big letters with a Sharpie that I can cross off is calming.

Last week I was freaking out about all the reading I had to gather. I was going out of my mind there was so much and now, miraculously that part is done. Try to remember that, try to remember that. A week or two from now and this part will be done.

More musicians in the subway. This is probably a cello, right? I must get a violin or a viola next.

    I’ve got the perfect instrument for you and the chances of you seeing it on the subway are slim to none.

    It’s a Viol da Gamba (or leg viola). Never heard of it until I was listening to Saturday Morning Edition on NPR and they were doing a segment about the resurgence of the viol. Loved the sound so much, I bought Vivaldi’s “Le Concert des Nations” which was written specifically for the Viol da Gamba.

    If you’re interested, here’s some videos from the Viol da Gamba Society of America:

    Ohmygod! So if I see someone carrying what looks like the case for a baby cello I will be able to show off! “Excuse me, but it that a Viol da Gamba?”
