Day 161 — Thank you, Austria
10-January-1972 (Montag—Mon.)


Back to work, lessons, etc.

Playing was bad. Going to take a while to get back.


Back in Vienna. Back to work. I’m back in Vienna and back to the grind. It looks like my vacation has affected my horn playing. Need to practice.

Looking back. What an incredible three weeks. First a week of skiing in Innsbruck, my first time in the Austrian Alps, meeting Elisabeth, experiencing the sauna-theater and hot-cold baths of Innsbruck, attending two Viennese New Year's traditions—Dei Fledermaus on New Year’s Eve and the Vienna Philharmonic on New Year’s Day—then a wonderful ski journey all over St. Anton. Simply incredible. My life in 2007–2008 is falling apart, but nothing could beat this time in 1971–72.
