If single-mothering were a paid job, I'd be rich. However, it doesn't, so I write (which doesn't pay the bills) and teach (which does). I'm overly-educated in the liberal arts, but that doesn't hinder my ability to be pragmatic and realistic. YAY.

    What an amazing player!

    Have you seen the YouTube orchestra? Pretty interesting idea… getting to play a Tan Dun piece at Carnegie Hall. There’s even a part for “Hub Cap” drummer LOL. But I wonder if they pay your airfare?

    Yeah. Check out how he transforms “While my Guitar gently Weeps.” I think it is available on Utube as well.
