Another slowish week, though with a couple of interesting (in my mind, at least) twists. The Bean and I continue with our guitar lessons. We've reached a point, though, where Lena is just picking up on things much quicker than I am. I end up sitting in the studio holding my guitar while she and the instructor accelerate past me. I think we're quickly coming to a point where maybe it's not worth me being there. So, I think I'll let the Bean continue with private lessons and maybe I'll do some practicing on my own and maybe revisit lessons a little later on.
I have also started reading a new book that I picked up by Nobel laureate (economics) Daniel Kahneman entitled Thinking, Fast and Slow. An intriguing read. Kahneman weaves a fascinating story about how we think, dividing our thinking processes into two inter-related systems - one that is automatic and routine (having a normal chat with a friend or navigating a car on an empty road), and one that requires closer attention and greater effort (multiplying two two digit numbers in your head). I've only read two chapters, but already I am enthralled. I'll keep you posted as I move along.
That's about it for this week. The weather here in Canada's capital city has been summer-like and will continue to be throughout the coming week, so I'm hoping I'll be able to tackle a bit more. All the best.
