I'm going to update this tired, incoherent website asap. At least I'm planning to...Flash goes obsolete end of December. That's ok, my audio clips are 1,000 yrs old.

H and I are going to the Bach Study Group in Hanover, NH on Friday mornings. Conductor is Mark Nelson and he's PERFECT. BSG is a non-performing ensemble. Mark chooses a cantata and we sing, play, and study it for a few months. Presently we're working on Cantata #106 scored for 2 recorders and 2 viols. Hildur and Chris Rua (recorders) and Martin Hanft (traverso!), Lucy McClellan (viol 1), me (viol 2). So BEAUTIFUL.
I'm singing in the Hartland Community Chorus this year. It's nice to be with community people on Tuesday nights at Damon Hall.
Chickens still laying. First snow. Yikes.

So I resigned from Happenstance Theater on July 22, 2018. It was hard and it's still hard but it was the right decision. Hildur and I bought some new property and it's exciting. The End for now
Happy new year 2019.
