Sometimes I have to play the cello for a reason or in a manner that I don't really prefer. Perhaps it's the project, perhaps it's the artistic requests being made, perhaps it's the music. It happens and it never feels great. Today was arguably one of those days. They gave us a bento, but I don't eat meat, and they gave us an extra nominal fee, but it was nominal. However, unfortunately, I'm always a sucker for flowers, especially the beautiful arrangements they have in Japan and today was my lucky day. I managed to carefully bike them and my cello home, and now the obligations of the day are melting away I have these beautiful colors lighting up the room.
