difficult- hard to deal with, manage, or overcome
I am trying very hard to be okay with this. I want him to be happy, but at the same time I want something to go wrong. At least now I am to the point where I can talk to him about how I am feeling. That helps me. And thank God for my tall friend. He always finds a way to get me in good spirits in one window on my computer screen, when on another window my heart is breaking. All I have to do is switch screens and he makes it okay.

First and foremost, today is a very special day. So...Happy Birthday to Vaughn. Hope you enjoy the concert tonight.
Secondly, I am in the process of finding a new opening picture. I loved my last one but unfortunately I can never have it back, at least I am fairly certain I can't. I did find another picture, the picture you see today, that I like a lot, however I am not sure I love it, as I did it's predecessor. Those of you who saw my last picture and/or see this one now, you know my taste. I am open to suggestions. My last picture was found by a friend. You know what they say, your friends know you better than you know yourself.

It should be a sin for internationally famous musicians to wear bright eggplant purple shirts. They should also be required to wear at least a three quarter sleeve when performing solos, so the audience does not have to watch their arm fat giggle. Today I had the pleasure of watching violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnerburg perform a Shostakovich violin concerto. She is a wonderful violinist. However, she lacks stage presence to say the least, the very least. Don't get me wrong, her musical performance was nothing less than extraordinary,not to mention Shostakovich is a genius and his violin concerto is beastly difficult. Never the less, her performance would have been much more enjoyable had I been blind. Her movement was far from graceful. You could hear her stomping her feet on the stage, and there really ought to be some kind of rule putting specific guidelines on how violent head jerking is allowed to be. Her bouncing, her jerking, and her stomping were, for lack of a more fitting word, awkward to say the very least.
It is amazing how different the Pioneer theater stage looks when you are sitting in the audience rather than sitting on stage. I am so used to being the entertainer; It was nice to be the entertained for a change. For the second half of the concert I went and sat in the front row. I was so close I could actually hear Barry Jakowski spitting on every big cue he gave. I pity the alpha circle.
Despite my bickering, it truly was an enjoyable concert. There is nothing more therapeutic than watching watching a sea of bows while listening to Beethoven's Fifth.
