summer slowness


After some shakuhachi rest in the sense of playing less on a daily basis and also taking a break from lessons I try to get it up to my old inspirational level. Most of the times the break of it feels ok, but sometimes I feel bad about it. Interests in things waver naturally through time, but in starting to play this flute I din't expect this to happen to this...well it did. I still consider it 'my instrument' though. It just is a thing that need to be kept alive I guess.
Next event that comes up my path is the European Shakuhachi summerschool in Prague! I am already enthousiastic about it! To meet others and play together is perhaps the best thing to keep the spirit of playing and wanting to practice alive.

Yes Bas, meeting up with others at the upcoming Shak Festival should help a lot with your wavering motivation.

My weekly sessions with the long tones players has done a lot to keep up my interest and enthusiasm. I hope you find the same from playing with the others at the festival.
