Today I have an audition for Columbus ProMusica, which is cool.  It is a three hour drive, and my dad is taking me.  Which is unusual because usually, my mom takes me, I go by myself, and in one instance Bridget came along.  So I don't know how this will go.  Audition days can be a roller coaster of intense emotion--nervousness, excitement, disappointment, sorrow, remorse inconsolable agony.  You know.  But it's like this--if he is not ready to leave when I am, I am stealing the car and driving home and he can ride his recumbent bicycle back.  And that's that.  I speak so candidly because he will never read my blog. :)

As you may know, I have a job where I work overnight at a gas station.  It is not the most spectacular, but the pay is good, and it doesn't require a great emotional investment.  Tuesday night I worked overnight, so that Wednesday was a manic day of practicing and lunching with Sumner.  I went to bed at 7PM.  It was spectacular. I noticed a tiny footstool in my practice room and this was the result:

Reedmaking table!  And here is an image of me at the desk to give you a little perspective:

Idon't know why I am making that face.  Probably because I had been awake for a long time.

So that's all.  Wish me luck!
