7.10.14Teaching, rehearsal, P. arrives, Enigmatica too. We perform in the evening and the concert is amazing. All the right things line themselves up join hands and the music flows. In the evening we all hang out, talk, laugh, sing a bit, but mostly we are just happy to be here and be together.

7.9.14This is our afternoon off– planned to give us a window out of theĀ  work we are doing. It’s good work, but we give ourselves up to it, and lose, if only for awhile, who we are. Today we walk in the Quoddy Bog and relax with friends.

7.7.14So we begin the week– lessons, classes, ensemble. For 5 days we are at service to the mandolinists and guitarists who have signed up to learn from us. So we will do that. We are the Johnny Appleseeds of mando-stuff. Ready and glad to spread the word.

7.5.14For us the storm is past, but further north it swings inland and trees are down and power is out in Lubec, our destination. My colleague for SummerKeys and I decide to delay our departure by a day, which turns out to be a good plan as we check further developments. It’s odd to be all packed and have nowhere to go, but I do some tasks left for Maine, since we will be arriving just ahead of the students. And watch Argentina continue on in the competition.
