Waking up at 11 a.m. There’s Elvis vying for affection at my bedside like he usually does every morning – he wants breakfast.

Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Strawberries, Maple Syrup, and Almond Milk. Irish Breakfast Tea.

At the Great Neck Rec with Ana shooting some basketball around. It’s been exactly 4 weeks since my wrist injury and it’s improved dramatically. I can form a shot with the ball without any pain.

Scrambled Eggs. Toast with Vegan Cream Cheese. Potatoes. Coffee.

Watching a documentary on Albert Einstein.

Teaching lessons at Music Makers.

Off work kind of early. I head to Ming’s Chinese Food for dinner by myself cause it’s close to the rehearsal spot. I just love the aesthetic of this building and business plaza. The colorful neon lights flicker in the windows. The little daughter of the Chinese family sits around on the booths watching things on her iPad. I order Fried Tofu with Mixed Vegetables and Garlic Sauce – watching the rest of this Einstein doc while I eat. Meanwhile, it starts to rain very lightly.

ELO rehearsal again.

Gelato Cone.

Chilling in Ana’s room. We get into some deep discussions about the progression of music since the 60’s and the theory of relativity. It gets personal on Ana’s end and I don’t know why. It always feels like she hears things through a filter of misperceived offense. Sometimes I sound condescending but it’s unintentional. I just want to dispense and share information as much as I can. Meanwhile, Elvis roams about from the bathroom sink to the scratching post.

Sleep 4 a.m.
