“What mood you’re in obviously has an effect on your music,” Mr. Wang said, “and being here is very soothing. I just make my reeds here and look out at the city with the Empire State Building, and it feels very open and private.”
I read it here.
Meanwhile, I must prepare to leave for work. It’s only an hour’s drive away, but who knows what traffic will be like, so I allow a lot of extra time. As I remind students, you simply cannot be late. It’s not an option! So “soothing” isn’t exactly a word I’m familiar with at the moment. Not with this job.
The word “grateful” is definitely one I’m familiar with now, though. Summer is normally a no or low income time. Not so this year. At least for now!
