I’ve managed to get some actual progress — painful and slow though it may be — in a 5/4 adaptation of the intro to the Haendel aria “Confusa si miri” from “Rodelinda” on piano. It’s been worse than pulling teeth. Pulling teeth a millimeter at a time, maybe.
On the bad side, between that and the freakish busyness at work, I’ve had very little time for the harp. However, it’s been tuned up again (had dropped a bit from neglect), and we’ll see what comes next. Some less than ideal circumstances and stress relating to family issues as well, but once again, it is what it is, and more information will come in time.
