keep learning...

My blogging has been pretty sparse over the past couple of months (Bill, if you are reading this, thanks for asking after me.) I plan to talk a bit about why this has been so over the next couple of days. For now, this from an early interview of Yo Yo Ma heard this morning on Boston Classical Radio. Ma talks of something his friend the great pianist Emanuel Ax once said to him. "The best thing about being a musician," said Ax, "is that you can keep learning all your life." Amen. I would only change the word "musician" to "human." blessings

Clearly you have had important things to attend to. Welcome back.

That's so true. I'm a musician, and I'm always looking for ways to improve--studying in books and practicing a bunch. But that's also true for my personal life. I study in books and practice a bunch for that too.
