home, work on them, and show up prepared to kick butt and take names.
Being expected to flounder four times a year on unfamiliar pieces with
an instrument that is not mine is counterproductive, not to mention
negative reinforcement, and I refuse to make myself miserable any more.
Instead, I'm going to concentrate on learning/arranging pieces for
psaltery, hurdygurdy and very soon, guzheng. I've gotten so disgusted
about beating my head against the brick wall that is bardic that I
haven't sung since February. I will when it feels fun again. Until it
does, why bother.
