March Towards Spring 2018

I wonder if being a tad early for March makes up for all the months that I've been a tad late getting these out. I'm ready to hit the road to Texas for a few days before doing a week of school workshops in western SC and southwest VA, so this has to be out the door on auto-pilot in time for Houston-area friends to get the reminder to join me at the legendary Anderson Fair Thursday night. But we also have something for you wherever you are on Tuesday March 20th with the "Spring is Here" vidcast.

We have the Live at Timucua concert video all edited and ready to go, and will have it available for download by mid-month, as promised. Plenty of details when we unveil it at the vidcast and in the April newsletter.

On a parting note, we're coping with a somewhat sudden goodbye to a beloved family member last week. Over the last 12 and a half years my orange buddy dropped in on vidcasts as well as my guitar lessons, and he was always laying around nearby while I worked at home. The presence of Gatito's absence is crushing all of us, and I am grateful for the welcome distraction of the road and the wonderful people who make it bearable to be away from home and family. I've not yet been able to collect my thoughts on the website blog, but I surely will soon. I have been blessed to have him in my home and my heart, and I'm blessed to have you in my life. Thanks for reading, thanks for listening, thanks for being your own wonderful self. Til next time.

If only he knew how much the feeling was mutual
