Hi everybody,

Thursday Feb 1 was the anniversary of my cancer surgery and I wanted to check in to let you all know that I’m doing well and how grateful I am for your good wishes and support while I went through my difficult time last year. I spent so many wonderful hours with you all sharing music and flute playing over the years and have been deeply touched by how the flute community came together to help with my recovery. Many of you wrote to me on this site and your comments were a great source of comfort and inspiration for us throughout this period.

I’m happy that I’m able to work again and see people in person now that I seem to be on the other side of my difficulties. Each week that goes by I feel more normal-I’m in the phase now where I get scans every several months and see how things go. 

Vicki and I have spoken personally to many of you over the past year to thank you but we haven’t gotten to see or talk to a lot of you as yet. It’s our hope to thank as many of you personally as we can in the future and we wish you and you families all the best. 

In recent years we’ve lost a number of cherished members of our community, including people who wrote to me in the comments for this site. I can only hope to give back to all of you the kind of love you showed me. 

Thank you again and much love,
