  • I have wanted a cello since high school. That's two decades. Today I have one. A gift from James and Mom.

    And it is a leap year.

    Hopefully by the next 2/29 I will be playing well.

    For now, huge thanks to James and Mom and a round of ear plugs. I will be accompanied by two donkeys and a macaw.
