I’m sitting in the San Jose Airport, waiting to board my early morning flight. Yep, off I go to my first (only?) International Double Reed Convention. I have my camera. I have an EMPTY reed case. I plan on posting photos if I can manage to get anything decent, and I plan on trying out reeds and I hope for something more than decent. Time will tell!

For now, though, I’m sitting here with my nonfat double latté. We don’t take off for an hour and 10 minutes, so I have time to waste.


  1. Have fun! The IDRS conferences are truly excellent. I suspect you will be back.

  2. I’m a bit overwhelmed, but it is fun, Bret. 🙂
