lunch and books
2003-01-21 - 1:45 p.m.
I went out for lunch, which was a good idea.
Food is good. Fresh air possibly better.
The students are back. They're everywhere -- although mostly in a line out the door of the copy place. Picking up readers.
The rain has them a little subdued, though, I think.
But now I'm back.
I did the horrible thing. I changed Maddy's piano teacher. The old one, while beloved, only gave half hour lessons and lived half an hour away. I feel terrible about moving. But also, the older students we observed at the recitals didn't seem so great. Like -- well, I think she's really a singer, and not a pianist. Well, maybe she's an accompanist. Which is its own sort of skill, but --
So anyway, I finally managed to tell her we're switching. I still feel terrible, but at least its done.
The new one lives five minutes away, gives 45 minute lessons, and is sort of a professional piano teacher.
We'll see. I hope I've done the right thing.
Got to go.
Life of Pi is getting interesting.
I'm thinking about books I wish we'd read/will read in the book group. We should have read the Corrections, Atonement --
I'm still thinking. There are a bunch of big books that we missed. We sometimes tend to pick less good books officially, but then we all end up reading the other books on the side -- which is good, but means we can't really talk about them.
Probably Kavalier and Clay.
