Hey all: I’ve been under the weather a bit which has caused me to miss lots of lessons and neglect the blog this week. Today was rescued by the important things in life: lots of Skype with friends and loved ones, a Harry Potter marathon on TV, and a visit from my student/soul sister Wendy, who brought me a ton of stuff, including a book containing this Mahler quote:

“The important thing is to never let oneself be guided by the opinions of one’s contemporaries; to continue steadfastly on one’s way without letting oneself be either defeated by failure or diverted by applause.” 
I like it.
