it's bigger in Nebraska!
I have lived 2 years in Houston, TX but let me tell ya'll, Nebraska tops it! I have never seen such big portions of food (no complains, I actually enjoy take away boxes). I have already explored one coffee shop here, in Nebraska City, which I visit often, they have great cappuccino! The owner now knows me and knows that I would like a special "Florie" size cappuccino in a 12oz cap. Yes, 12oz is a special size here, the regulars are 16 oz or 20 oz. Just to describe how big it is: a Tall size cup of coffee at Starbucks is 12oz!
This morning I felt like having an American breakfast, I went to Johnny's. It was just what I needed- a pancake and a hot chocolate. The pancake was ENORMOUS and pretty good, too. My face filled with a smile! I think I got my yearly craving fix of pancakes ;) I love Nebraska! I was also impressed by the clock collection they have on the wall! (pictures to come).
As for composing- it was a very productive day with 16 measures written and a full plan for the first movement (I am aiming for 3 movements in total for this piece). I used sketches I have been writing in the past couple of days. I hope my loop playing on the piano didn't annoy my next door neighbors...
I have decided to name on piece of music- classical or a song, that I recommend for you guys. I'll try to make it on a daily basis. So, here is the first one:
THE MUSIC INSPIRATION OF THE DAY: French composer- Erik Satie, piece title: Gymnopédie No.1 (/3), written in 1888. Calm and relaxing. Enjoy!
