I am enjoying relearning my skills and learning some new skills as long as I stay relaxed about it and don’t pressure myself. I have to guard against impatience and becoming too self critical. I also have to stay in touch with my own feelings and tastes. Recently looked into playing with a community orchestra but when I went to download the music, I experienced stress rather than excitement. I listened to it played on YouTube; this verified that I did not like the music for listening. That, and the fact that it met on an evening that conflicted with another activity that is good for me helped me to decide to wait and not participate just yet. Maybe in the future!
