I really couldn't be in a better place, in terms of my career as well as personally for my family. I'm extremely grateful for everything happening right now, so as you can see there is no reason for 13 to be anything but my new lucky number.
Time to let the batteries recharge and get ready for the fall....speaking of which, it's not even the end of June and I have already updated my course syllabus, picked the fall percussion ensemble program and even started making copies of music. What?!?
Now, if I could only get some scores to start writing the drumline book....nah, still plenty of time.
