I want to say a special heart-felt thanks to those of you who have been keeping me and my family in your thoughts and prayers.
Let's just say that the past year hasn't been so easy for us. After a very difficult move, some rather depressing eye problems, including a couple of surgeries, I'm kind of trying to reconstruct my life again. It has been difficult using the computer, teaching and just doing many of the things I've always taken for granted. It's been a real emotional kick in the n-ts.
Gary called the other day and said that some of you were asking for me. I was really moved. I’ve been a member of this forum for quite some time and all you guys and gals mean a great deal to me. So much has happened during my absence, but I'm trying to go back over some of the old posts and catch up. So you'll be seeing more from me from now on.
But it hasn't been all bad news. My wife and I had a wonderful vacation on the big Island of Hawaii last summer. I think more than any thing that time off from the world helped me reconstruct things.
Looking forward to getting back playing with GPO, JABB, the new fiddle, cello, marching band Steinway and who knows what else again.
Bless you all,
