I did some organ practice

I went to do a bit of organ practice at the Motherchurch after martial arts yesterday.

As I have already discussed, I used to be quite nervous in a big, dark church all alone, but have managed to overcome that, mostly. Alas, yesterday I took a bit of a step backwards. On the committee in which they decided whether or not the female organ scholar should be allowed to use the organ scholar keys, apparently one lady was genuinely concerned for my safety. Presumably this, combined with the dark, isolated, surrounded-by-many-places-to-hide car park, made me think that perhaps there was a risk of being attacked, or something. I went into the church with trepidation, and exited it with trepidation also.

This is very annoying. The Motherchurch feels like a safe, welcoming place, and being scared is a bit too girly for my liking. No doubt a few more sessions of turning up late and staying later will reduce this.

I did get some fairly good practice in. I have realised that I am not even trying to find which pedal I am supposed to play by feeling for the ones that stick up, and so decided to do some sightreading to make myself try harder. I think that this worked a bit. I am also getting to grips with a couple of the pieces that I am playing. Not up to a suitable standard, of course (this is still me we are talking about - my standards are very high, but I do not quite have the capability to live up to these standards), but they may one day get there. I have to get good at this thing at some point!

Generic Viagra
Thanks for the great blog . I really enjoyed reading, I am a 54 year old man and I had problems of erectile dysfunction but it already was a stage closed in my life I find the solution Generic Viagra Soft Tabs is a new product that is used to treat sexual impotence in men. These soft tabs are based on the same active ingredient as other erectile dysfunction pills: sildenafil citrate. Therefore, patients will experience the same results and satisfaction as with any other brand name. The desired effects should start appearing shortly after the tablet is dissolved under the tongue.
Generic Viagra Soft Tabs is also a Cipla product. This pharmaceutical company is famous for providing top quality medications after 70 years of experience.
