Back to school today. Well, not school, but band is back in the diary for Thursday nights. It’s funny, but even though I haven’t picked up my flute since mid-July (slaps wrist!) I found that my breathing and tone were much improved. The only thing I can figure out that I’ve done differently since then, is spend two weeks a hay-meadow, scything and losing half a stone in 40 degree heat…

Maybe that’s the secret. Scything makes for a better flute player??!!!
