|Sara is all too familiar with tight places.|
1. Are you in a tight place? If so, what are you trying to do about it?
Hard to narrow down the range of my tight places. The rooms in my house are tight. There's never enough time to go around. I'm trying to adjust some things, and we've dropped some things this school year, like the children's choir and the weekly homeschool enrichment classes. I also lost two piano students, due to them moving away.
2. What do you want to get done this year?
I hardly ever get time to think about that question. I make lists but never get to them. I never have time to think what to do beyond just getting everyone through the day. But I've been practicing the piano again. I learned an entire Brahm's piece--Op. 118 No. 1--and I would love to learn a couple more from this set and have a lesson with my old piano teacher [from high school and the University of Utah] when I go home to Utah for Christmas. I also have a goal to pick up the violin again and practice with my oldest daughter. She's about the level I was when I stopped. But I need a new bow for my violin. It's warped, so before the end of the year, I'm going to order a new bow. At the end of her Violin Book 4, there's a Bach piece for two violins, and so I thought it would great to play it with her.
3. What inspires you?
I don't feel inspired a lot, because of all of the demands on me. I feel more depleted than inspired. When I am inspired it's from my really great friends, who have lots of great skills.
