I’m going back through my old site just for fun (and to make sure I’ve found all the quotes from that site that I’ve not yet transferred over to here). It was sort of fun to reminisce, starting from the very beginning (a very good place to start). And if you’re wondering why I’ve got “a very good place to start” in my head just go here and maybe you’ll figure it out! That’s one of the earliest posts from the old site. January 30, 2003, in fact. Wow. I’ve been at this since January 17, 2003. How ’bout that?

By the way, I spelled “reminisce” correctly on the first try. Amazing. Really. Anyone who would like to send oboe reeds to me as a reward feel free.

I’m listening to Eugene Izotov’s CD Sound In Motion. Clearly oboe is easy. It’s as simple as that. Easy, easy, easy.

Or at least that’s how HE makes it sound! 😉

It’s really humbling to listen to some of my recordings. I’ve been particularly humbled by his CD and Julie Giacobassi’s English horn and oboe d’amore CD.

Sigh and double sigh.
