By Day, By Night...

Today we did this...(and yes, there were some VERY steep parts!)



While tonight, there was a little of this...The violin...ready to go.
Nathaniel, fueling to spectate!
Too nervous to eat.
(Warming up, 20 minutes before the concert...)

A great hike late morning around the Mike Turf area of Camp Pendleton, followed up by my first orchestral performance in 12+ years. Yes - I felt a little rusty performing with an orchestra... I may have skipped dinner due to pre-race, errrr, performance jitters. But all was well.

Overall it was a great day - even for these two... who could rest easy. Literally.


And tomorrow - I get to do it all over again. The performance, that is. Great for ironing out those missed cues, I suppose. As for the hike - while I loved just about every minute (even the 45-degree angle part), will have to be put on hold. I've got a run on tap - and as long as my sinuses cooperate, we should be good to go.

Have a GREAT Sunday Everyone!

Congrats on the concert! So cool you are performing again after 12 years. I can't imagine how nervous that would make me.
