Daniel's friend Lee is visiting, so I just spent dinner hearing about various states of awareness, mystical experiences, and how Buddhism is not an atheistic religion. He's rather interesting to talk to, provided you don't worry about things like getting a word in edgewise :-)
Good day today. Piano seemed to go especially well. I don't know why, but I'm not complaining. It's nice, once in a while, to feel like I can actually play that thing. I'm also still working a bit on my sense of pitch. I think I'm actually getting significantly better at being able to pull a middle C right out of my head, provided I think about it carefully. It's still a ways from perfect pitch, and my relative pitch needs work too, but it's cool to think that I'm improving at it.
