After working 4 10-hour days, on Saturday afternoon I always feel like a wet, wrung-out, moldy dish rag. Wet, wrung-out, moldy dishrags are not capable of playing pipes. I did not practice this Saturday. I could have practiced during my half hour lunch at 0730, but I ate breakfast instead. Should food take priority over piping? I s'pose if I was committed, pipes would take precedence. It's hard to be committed when you are tired and hungry. Committed to anything besides sleep and food, anyway.
I'll try again tomorrow.
Here's an inspiring quote, though:
Anything worth doing is worth doing badly.
Think about it. You're not going to do anything well right away. It takes time and practice.
