Okay. So the economy is tanking. Well, tanked. and our 401ks are worthless and no one knows what’s going to happen and we need to pass a stimulus and the lawmakers can’t agree and it’s all terrible.

But in Idyllwild we have this little snowstorm. Okay, this BIG snowstorm and we’re stuck in our house. The truck and subaru are up on the highway, but honestly I don’t think this time that we can hike there. It’s really deep. Like, take a step, sink to your chest.

So we’re trapped.

Lately, I have to confess, I’ve been feeling really stressed, actually panicked. I have concerts coming up and have had no time, no empty brain space, no peace in which to practice. But as of yesterday, I have a house, a roaring fire, plentiful food, and a Steinway at which I can sit and make sure that all is well for the concerts.

Even if the power goes out(as it surely must) I’ll be okay. The Steinway doesn’t have a power cord.

    So, just today — on a sunny, almost spring day, on the cusp of Spring Break — I read Doug’s entry for the “big” snow storm, and recalled what it was like to be at home on that “snow day,” with a cozy fire but no electricity. What do I do now? no lights to read, no phones, no computers … well, we sat around at home and talked. Students related how they got a deck of cards and played or built a snowman or just sat alone and thought or with each other and talked. It was a wonderful reminder how rushed we are, and how much we fill our “too little time” with more activities, not necessarily meaningful. Enjoy some quiet time (with music, or a book or looking at a painting … possibilities are endless, if we just stop and remember!
