Here … enjoy this “happy snap” (his term) that Charles Cramer sent me from his recital last week (Thanks, Charlie!). I can’t believe it was only one week ago today that I got to enjoy his fine playing and play a few works with him myself. What a fun time it was.

This was taken prior to the recital, as we were running just a few things. How should one prepare? Well … obviously with bare feet!

Believe it or not, I actually DID have bare feet for the final work. I wish more than one student had come to witness that bit ‘o fun. HOW to get students to attend?! I guess that’s a forever challenge. At least for me. I was grateful to see one there, though. Thank you, Jamin, for coming, and thanks as well for the flowers!
