Hi, Daralee. We are busy getting ready for a full day of playing our music
on the local college campus this Saturday. Unfortunately, it is getting
warm out as well. I begin to melt when that happens. I hope our music
Yes, I revisited my lost young adulthood in New York when I was there.
I was just out of the army, newly married to my first wife, living in
cheap quarters in Brooklyn, commuting to New York University in the village,
Greenwich Village--the Washington Square Park area. When I saw a couple
of weeks ago where I had lived, I couldn't believe it. Could anyone live
in such run-down, dilapidated, outdated apartments? And of course I had
lived there and loved it. It was all a great adventure. My life was ahead
of me. So I revisited my past. I am not a native New Yorker, not by a
long shot, just someone passing through on his way somewhere else, but
what a great experience it was, what an education. Anyway, enough of that.
I go back now to different drumming sounds, different whistles and bugle
calls. A different music. The best to you, D. richard
