Back again after 11 years

I just got back from my first rehearsal with the Oregon Sinfonietta. I believe it was the first orchestra rehearsal I had been to since late 1996, which makes it just over 11 years since I played in an orchestra.

It was... great.

No wait, I mean... awesome. It kicked ass. Why did I let myself go for 11 years without playing in an orchestra? I am on such a high right now.

Also: boy, am I rusty. Hopefully as an adult, I will be able to find the kind of motivation to practice that I always lacked when I was in school and I thought of practicing as "homework".

conform and tornadogrrrl, thank you so much for talking me into this.
