Since we're all vaxxed I met with my band director and another band-mate for some flute/oboe/bassoon fun. First time I'd touched the bassoon in over a year, and the first time any of us had rehearsed since the pandemic began. Our embouchures were shot after only 4 pages of a chart - nice early 18th-century chamber music by a French composer I'd never heard of - even with a lot of breaks and gabbing. It's going to be a regular thing! I'd almost forgotten how wonderful it is to play with others. This will motivate me to practice more, too, though it will cut into guitar time.
