I am exhausted and relieved. Tonight was our (symphony's) final concert of the season. I am absolutely wiped out and relieved that the season is over. Now the hard part comes (channeling Nancy Reagan) and I have to decide...was this my last concert?

I have until October to decide. All season long, I was determined that this would be my last; I just need the time back. But, tonight, on that stage... I really think that I will miss having music in my life (this is my last "real" outlet). I know I will miss performing. Why does this have to be so hard? No, I refuse to put my big girl panties on and make a least for now. I have time. I know by October, I'll miss it.

For now, I'm gonna let my feet recover. I wore a long formal and sneakers! I thought that would help my feet and I'm sure that it actually did, but boy are they killing me.

Goodnight ya'll!

    The stage is a hard one to leave. Like you said you have time to decide. emoticon

    That is quite a big decision. I would definitely give it some time and space before deciding. I always used to think it would be kind of fun to be in one of those string quartets that went around playing weddings and such. Of course I used to play the tenor sax so that wasn't really an option! maybe a jazz quartet! I love string music though, I'm sure whether you decide it's time to move on now or in ten years you will miss it.

    Awwww, hugs. It's always so difficult to contemplate a big change! You're right . . . think about it awhile.

    Meanwhile, LOVE the mental picture of a formal with sneakers!!!! I did that @ my wedding. Wedding dress with lacey sneakers @ the reception. Kinda like in FATHER OF THE BRIDE (LOVE that movie!)

    Have a wonderful day and HUGS. You'll know what's right as time goes on.

    Ohhhh, all that applause, the attention, the instruments all coming together to make beautiful music...I would think this is going to be a very difficult decision. I am not musical at all, but the idea of performing is very tantalizing to me. Good luck in whatever you decide.
