We changed clocks over the weekend–and sprang forward. I had a busy Saturday and actually went to bed an hour later than usual. Somehow, when I woke on Sunday, eventho I had LESS sleep, felt more rested than I have for months. The sun was shining and everything seemed brighter and more alive–we here in the Midwest are really sensitive to light and dark. I have an urge to–gasp–clean and that almost NEVER happens! Still, it makes me itch to get things going–and that’s lucky.
We start our new concert cycle rehearsals on Tuesday with new music and one new singer. I am excited about this repertoire–Italian Madrigals and German partsongs–and can think of other ways to use the music in the future. It’s that time in the concert cycle when anything seems possible, much like spring. Can’t wait to begin!
