It has been quite some time since I’ve posted to this blog. I’ve been to Alaska and back and have written an arrangement for the Terre Haute Community Band–not to mention starting a new semester of teaching. Much as I’d like this blog to be a more regular journal of miscellany, there have been a number of things that “seemed important at the time.” In fact, most of them were. Blogging is fun, and even therapeutic, but travel and composing, arranging, and teaching will win if there’s a conflict. Happy 2013, everyone.
