Geez, it's nice practicing in a practice room. I've gushed before about the campus at Willamette University, but dang I'd love to teach there. There's old brick buildings, enORmous old pines, and a bubbly stream tastefully lined with tiny yellow crocuses winding through it all. Seriously, I feel smarter and more affluent just walking around there.
So here we are, back in the throbbing metropolis. Sushi! Industrial buildings converted to overpriced vanity space! So much to covet, so little... meh.
