Echoing Pianoperformance's sentiment: since my regular play-time slot is 4am, it takes a disturbing amount of motivation to get me out of bed and to the piano, and fear of ending up Off the Wagon has been at least half of my motivation in these winter months.

And yeah, I'm at three out of "40" pieces for the year; it's not happening, but I am at least making progress.

Casinitaly - I am sorry to hear that you have the flu! That is totally miserable. I will put you on the excused list for Feb 5.

OrangredStilton - Don't count yourself out of the 40 piece challenge yet! Three pieces for January is quite respectable. 40 pieces is less that 4 per month!

I missed a day Saturday, Feb 4, because we were in Cordoba for our anniversary. 23 years together!

Thanks Barbaram smile

I need to be excused for yesterday, 7 Feb also.

I am still under the weather, but I will get to the piano later today, even if only for scales and arpeggios!

Happy Anniversary SwissMs and GMajor...glad you could go and celebrate. Casinintaly, hope you're starting to feel better. A bad bug has been going through campus and my family too. Keeps folks down for a week or so. I'm drinking vitamin C and zinc hoping to avoid it.

I had to miss practicing Feb. 7, but it was for a good cause. I was downtown working from very early until dinnertime, at which point I left my business meeting to join my wife and SiFi and his better half for the Yuja Wang/Leonidas Kavakos recital at Strathmore. Didn't get home until very late, knowing I'd have to leave today by 6am. So no practice last night -- but tons of inspiration!

Thanks. This was my first time seeing Yuja live. She's amazing, and for once we had great seats -- fourth row center.

It was an unusual recital: Four violin/piano sonatas. They all had formidable piano parts.

FWIW, I thought Yuja overshadowed her violin partner, but that's no shame on him. She's an exceptional musician.

I have not practiced since last Friday. frown I have been moving from Poland to Canada and it took me a few days to settle. I don't have a piano yet but I plan to get one tomorrow and restart my MOYD, and if I don't then I'll come back here to confess.

Qazsedcft - Congratulations on your adventure in moving to Canada. Moving countries is a big deal, and does indeed take time away from piano. I was piano-less for weeks last fall in my move to Spain. I will add Feb 3-10 to your excused list. Have fun piano shopping!

In the interests of full accountability, I'd like to be excused for Feb 8: some kind of bug had me laid up in bed at my usual practice time.

Back to it yesterday and today, making progress with my current piece wink

Thanks

Please add Feb 15 and 16 to my list of absences. I was in Phoenix at a workshop on Student Success and although I took my music, there was no piano available. Probably not enough free time to touch one anyway.

Skiing was great and in fact, almost as good as the time in switzerland!

I managed to come back in time to spend some time at the pinao on the 18th. So my off perios was 11-17.

Hi!
unfortunately I could not practice on Feb 19
I always practice piano in the morning, before going to work. Yesterday, we had an audit at work. so, I had to study some documents in the morning (instead of playing piano)
I got back home at 6 pm. I had enough time but I was mentally tired. I could not do anything. not playing piano, nor cooking! confusedI just wanted to rest!
but good news is that I am off today and I can practice double!
