Thanks, everyone, for making this particular boot camp the most enjoyable in the 10 years I've been having it. It was quite an experience to have everyone dive in with such gusto, and work well while being out of your respective comfort zones.
As I was walking the dog after leaving Hale's Ales, I really felt like practicing. I suppose I could take the afternoon off, and perhaps Sunday as well, but I do have what is essentially a solo recital on September 2, here in Seattle. On the other hand, and I hope I am not alone, I am what one might call exhausted, mentally and physically.
During the coming week it will all sink in and all of the things I made mental notes of to address in my own practicing will make themselves evident. The workshop really does help me to become a better player. The nitpicking on individuals are almost always things that I see in my own playing. You all are, in a sense, teaching me.
There were some awards to be handed out today but, as usual, I ran short of time between Friday night and Saturday morning, so I will have to send them via the post.
I'll post photos as they come in to me. For now, watch this space for those few I (or Sam, Rich, and George) took with my camera.
Thank you all again!
