I am sometimes inept and clumsy. After an evening of practiving my stretchy cat violin with the girls at Rowany music practice, where I felt not too inept, while walking outside the North Sydney train station, I almost sprained my ankle. Walking, juggling an empty iced coffee bottle and completely missed the steps underneath my feet. ooops. Landed, caught myself, with my hands, not my face and stopped for a minute. wow.
I thank my feet for all the tendon strengthening exercises I have done over the years to prevent what my poor mum has been afflicted with for most of her life - weak ankles. I have somehow managed to give myself strong ones. When I do what would easily turn hers to mush, mine keep going. Energiser ankles. w00t!
15 minutes of peace while I caught the train home and the foot was fine. yay!
I hope it doesn't swell up over night though, as my bike has a holey front tyre, so walking is a must to get to work in the morning.
*shrug* we'll see.

back to music practice. We were relegated to the dungeon of small echoey evilness because there were meetings happening in hte room we'd normally practice in. The chamber was really really bad to practice in, there were sound reflection in all the worst possible ways. and to cap it off, we were still just as loud in the hall as if we'd been practicing in it. The stairwell channeled the sound out rather well.
I'm feeling a bit better about practicing in company as well. I am competent with my fingers, now I just need to increase my repetoire *lots* and I'll be happy. Will still take the evil beast of doom to events and play when I can. I know a couple of pieces well enough.
practice, as they say, practice.
