I haven’t been writing much lately. Haven’t spent much time reading blogs or online news, either.

Rather, I’ve been cooking more, reading books, and getting crafty. Last weekend I made this:

It’s small, only 5″x5″, and it came as a kit with the mat, glass, and stand. I enjoyed it and have another slightly more complex one to start next.

While I stitched this, I watched three Nova episodes that explained string theory. Now that requires some creative thinking! It’s complex, even mind-boggling, yet incredibly fascinating.

On a lighter note, I re-read The Phantom Tollbooth, a children’s classic. I’d given each of my students a copy as a reward for good performance. Juster’s play with words throughout the allegory tickles me.

Happy Monday, all.

    You are really quite amazing.

    As my own little sop to creativity, I spent about two hours today practicing three of Chopin’s waltzes. The one in A-Minor is the most challenging, and by far the longest (5 pages).

    While not perfect, I have them to the point that they begin to sound pretty good.

    Hey, keeps me off the streets!

    Thank you, dear Kat.

    And yes, Pat, I’ve enjoyed reading your missives about the music you practice. And also your letters and photos about Terrorist! Makes me smile when I go to my inbox. 🙂
