Mental block

Weird stuff. Last night I chopped my index finger along with the cabbage (which luckily was red already). Tiny cut but better covered with a small plaster (and can test this new brand of plaster for allergy while I'm at it). Did not hurt much yesterday, hardly hurts at all now.

So now I can't play the piano! I'm avoiding using that finger even though I don't need to. While in some places it now gives me access to the fingerings that my long-suffering teacher writes in my music, in others it's all sixes and sevens, and makes it much harder to play - just having that white plaster in front of my eyes.

Think I'll keep it on for tomorrow's lesson ....gives me an excuse.....
