Awake, I contemplate the hour.
While the minutes slip
Into shadows and silence.

When the darting duel
Betwixt tick and tock
Is finally ended,
Will I dream?
Well this was supposed to get posted back in August when it actually happened but my browser ate my homework, so to speak, and I gave up in frustration figuring that it was gone forever. Recently I discovered it stashed away in Stash, so here it is.

I haven't been doing much writing at the moment. Eventually, I'll get back to that. For now, the things that I've been finding joy in don't really work so well on dA.

Also, I've wanted a harp for a long time. Price, however, was always a stumbling block for met. Surprisingly, a few weeks ago I ran across one at a local pawn shop. It seems that somehow they end up with a Dusty Strings Ravenna 26 string harp. The price I got was good and I couldn't resist. I'm finding that playing the harp is, in its own way, as relaxing for me as playing my flutes. It's easy to lose track of time and just be when working with either one.

Flute Quest was fun this year. I really enjoyed seeing friends and, of course, the music and the flutes. There was an amazing flute based on the Pegasus myth there that I was pretty blown away by. No, I didn't go home with it. It was rather out of my price range. Rona Yellowrobe, Jonny Lipford, and --- well that was exciting, found the neighbors apartment filled with smoke and pulled the building fire alarm. I'm sooo glad I was awake. That's enough adrenaline for the night.

Hi! I haven't been on dA much lately. Sorry it took so long to reply. Life has been pretty good mostly --  and really busy. I've been helping some friends with their podcast and, of course, I'm still playing with horses and making music. How've you been?
