It’s That Time of Year

Well, tomorrow I go charging off into the woods for another year of Apple Hill. To say that I am unprepared to leave is the understatement of the century. My house is a mess, I am unpacked, and I am in denial. I love Apple Hill, but it is traditionally exhausting, and I am already exhausted from a particularly tiring stretch of work activity. Oh well, life moves forward! This year’s musical faculty is chock full of my favorite people so once I am there, the laughing will come fast and furious. I have no doubt that Apple Hill will be incredible, as usual. Getting out of town tomorrow on the other hand…..that could be dicey.

If I have not returned your call recently, please forgive me. If I have not returned your email recently, please forgive me. If I have been a general knucklehead to you recently, I am genuinely sorry. I don’t know how I ended up so overwhelmed this Spring, but I did. (I still think it’s Spring, that’s how out of touch I am these days.) I might be hard to get a hold of in the woods. Email and cell phones are always a little iffy out there, but I’m bringing my computer this time, so at the very least, I can drive my butt into town and find a signal to civilization.

Probably the best thing that could happen to me right now is two weeks in the deep woods- like it or not.

    I don’t know how I ended up so overwhelmed this Spring, but I did.

    Two words: Hoc-Key

    Again, I welcome you to the world of Buffalo sports.

    I hope your little cabin is free of bats this year.

    Pray you’re not stuck in Cherubini. I almost died several times trying to claw my way back there in the dark. Oh, and one of the windows is busted. And there are mice. And carpenter ants in the wall that you can hear chewing all night.

    Oh, thanks for the heads-up on the need for flip-flops, by the way! I owe you one. Say hi to everyone in NH for me!

    Yep, what Kevin said. I believe it’s all You-Know-Who’s fault that you’re feeling so overwhelmed. A girl can only take so much after all.

    Sam! I AM stuck in Cherubini! I’ll say hello to your ant friends.

    Cherubini is reserved for the highest-level virtuoso violists only. the ants are there to sweeten the wood acoustics for better practicing feedback.
