15 Sep 2008: At St Leonards
One way to manage pain is to look at the positive sides of things. On my way to the shop that sells sheet music, I looked at the brighter side of how I have managed to find my way safely to St Leonards single-handedly. That probably showed that I have at least the capability to navigate about places on my own.
St Leonards is a comparatively more laid-back neighbourhood compared to the urban Sydney City. I quite like the sub-urb character of St Leonards. I do not have a map about St Leonards so I was basically relying on the limited visual memory that I have had of the map of the locality which I had some glimpses of while I was at the station.
I am pleased to share that I managed to find my way, safe and sound, to Zephyr Music. My objectives to visit Zephyr Music was to browse through the sheet music publications for double bass. I was hoping to find some suitable sheet music for diploma exams. However, it did not carry the Dragonetti's Concerto in G major (orchestra tuning) and the Bottessini's Concerto in A (orchestra tuning) that I was keen to purchase. Anyway, I got myself a publication containing orchestral excerpts for the double bass player. I also bought for myself a few charts that contain German and Italian musical terms.
Needing rest to recuperate, I headed back to the St Leonards station once I was done with my purchases. On the ride by to Sydney city, I took a photo of the Sydney Harbour Bridge while I was on the train. Enjoy!
