My quiet week is over, and tomorrow it is back to work! I always assume that I will not want to return to teaching, and in truth, after so much work since the end of February, I wanted a break, a song free zone, and a lot of sleep!
I now feel almost back to normal, and infact I know that when I return to my music room and play the first accompaniment to the first set of scales I will resume normal service and be very glad to be back, thankful I do a job I love, and thankful that I have a job at all !
I am truly astounded sometimes when I realise how folk manage to find the cash for something which, whilst pleasurable and fulfilling, is, on the whole a bit of a fluffy nonsense in the great scheme of things ? That is why I try very hard to make sure I always give value for money !
I have, however, always thought that singing is as much a therapy as a joy, and a good deal cheaper perhaps than a psychotherapist ! Thankfully the therapy is in the music, not in my words !
What a relief!
Onwards and upwards, exams, show, festivals.........it's all go !
