Day 264 — If you have a bad day, wait, the next day may be better
22-April-1972 (Samstag–Sat.)


Eine gute Tag. Jeder Tag is verschiedene.

Am morgen, hatte ich sehr gute Horn für meine unterriecht gespielt.

Noch wir haben mehr arbeit für meine Komposition gemacht. Hat ziemlich gut gegangen, aber nicht fertig, jetzt.

Dan für Ruhe, werden ein Buster Keaton film gesehen—sehr, sehr lustig.

Und jetzt schriebe ich einer Brief zu meine familie, weil habe ich eine zehr lange zeit nicht geschrieben.



A good day. Every day is
different (verschiedene).

In the morning, I played very well for my horn lesson.

Then we worked more on my composition (Fantasy on Broken Glass). We
did quite well (ziemlich gut gegangen) but did not finish yet.

Then, for a rest, I went to see a Buster Keaton film. Very, very funny.

And now, I am writing a letter to my family because I have not written them in a long time.


Lesson for today—Ying and Yang. Yesterday, I was complaining and said I had a bad day. Today, I’m having a great day—both on the horn and for my composition. Lesson—if you’re having a bad day, wait. The next day may be better.

A letter home. Thank goodness I’m writing a letter home. I don’t seem to be doing that a whole lot. I think we get so busy that we forget that everyone in our family is wondering how we are doing. In those days, writing was the only option. A phone call was very prohibitively expensive. It’s not like we had cell phones, or Skype.
