I think that “nervosity” should be a real word… is it? I think that it sounds plausible as a real medical condition.
Well… getting to the purpose of my post now ; I’m getting a little nervous about this upcominf year of performances. Strangely enough. I’m very excited about it, don’t misinterpret that… but I’m also nervous to jump back into the fray of serious cello performance.
This last spring I broke a small bone in my wrist and had to take the majority of the summer to recover. Why… it’s only been this month that I’ve seriously started practicing and building calluses.
I still love playing and my heart is in my cello… but I think a small part of my mind is scared for my wrist, even though I’ve gotten the okay from the doctors.
Enough focus on my case of nervosity… I’m excited for these upcoming solos. They were a surprise, as I didn’t think I was scheduled for any until next spring… but I relish the challenge.
Next time I’ll tell you what they are… and when, where, why… all of the “w” questions shall be answered… next time.
