Stumped. A zillion topics, and I can’t get my brain off the ground.
I’ve had a headache all day. I’ve drunk a lot of water, and I’ve made sure to take my allergy medicine. The headache has accompanied sneezing and some achiness. But I attribute that discomfort from playing the clarinet longer than usual.
The pollen count has been so high.
I very seldom get headaches. Most of the time I’m smooth sailing. I work straight through my day. Lots of water, enough food. Maybe rest? Is my rest lacking? Would that make a difference?
Maybe some stretching, too. Increase circulation.
Could have squeezed in a nap today. Perhaps I was also excited for a new clarinet barrel getting delivered today. Barrels are such interesting accessories, in that different ones affect tone in different ways. I put the new barrel on my Bb, and the cork is a little loose, so I wrapped some teflon tape around it to form a better seal. Which makes a big difference.
But yes: an early bedtime would be nice tonight.
So I won’t have to write about a headache and how my day has centered around it.
I mean, NOW I have ideas, but I’ll save them for later.
You know, when I don’t have a headache.
