Flowers might work

I’d write here more, but unfortunately I’ve been distracted with this disagreement I’ve been having with my 2nd movement. See, I think it would be nice for it to transition easily and beautifully from this gorgeous book into lovely musical architecture … and it seems to think it would be funny to grab me by the scruff of the neck and bang my head into the piano. (Ach. It hurts.)

Luckily, there is plenty more music to write. The first movement, for instance. I wrote some possible actual measures for that one yesterday, and they made me giggle. That’s usually a good sign.

One of the great pleasures of this project is letting myself think globally over several movements, so I’ve been reminding myself that getting frustrated with cramming material into a six-minute space isn’t necessary this time and I can move on without guilt. Because for this one, it’s all of a piece (so to speak).

So I think I’ll let #2 cool off for a little while, because it’s obviously really, really mad at me.

    Flowers might work. But so could spankings. It’s hard to know for sure ’till you’ve tried it.
