Hello, dear readers! I’m pretty sure it’s Thursday. Time has felt particularly nebulous this week.
On Friday, my new octave mandolin arrived, and I am obsessed with it. I’ve played almost every day since it arrived. It’s beautiful and everything I wanted.
Here’s a video of me playing “Sí Bheag, Sí Mhór,” one of my favorite songs to play on mandolin. I’m a little rusty, but i love how this instrument sounds.
I don’t have a lot of other news this week, but I’d like to leave you with this article. It pulls no punches and is a hard read, but I believe it’s important for framing our conversations about racism.
I hope you’re hanging in there. Wear a mask when you go out, and take care of yourself and your people!
