    I definitely would not want to stay in LOC dungeon. My pictures do not do justice to the beautiful sunset. If you only ever stay in one hut, perhaps this should be it.

    Saw an interesting interview with Sir Paul McCartney who said he never learned to read or write music, that he just sees it in his head. An amazing and still humble person.

    I'm having similar worries. We went up to Interlochen (National Music Camp) for a concert a couple of weeks ago. It reminded me that for many decades they have a week-long chamber music camp for adult amatures. I played a lot of string quartets on high…

    My recent bluegrass camp was great but some things were a disappointing repeat of last year. I memorized a lot of tunes for the jam sessions but as soon as I start playing with other people, they go out of my head. If i miss a note or make a bad sound,…
