Wow I can’t believe it’s the start of November already! Fall has just blown by in the winds of busy-ness. I’ve been having a great time with my students and a number of them are getting to graduate various violin books in a few weeks. Congratulations!
I’ve been busy this fall with setting up my studio, teaching, writing, and a new activity – raising ducklings!
We incubated a few eggs from friends and ended up with three cute little cayuga-pekin ducklings. I watched the eggs wiggle as they were getting ready to hatch. I sat around playing them Brandenburg Concertos while I wrote and watched the eggs wiggle! I’ll have to make a post about this whole process soon – it was amazing! now they are 5 weeks old and almost have all their feathers. Once they have their feathers they can live outside.
I also went to a wonderful conference in Cape Breton over Thanksgiving and now I’m preparing for the Society of Ethnomusicology meeting in the United States in mid-Nov.
I will start making blogging part of my regular activites, however i’m being kept quite busy!
