August eighth will mark the close of my tenth year at Rosewood.  I’ve been trying to think of something profound, or clever to write about the occasion, but I keep coming back to simple things.  It’s the day-to-day of it that is really a blessing, and the community of people who have gathered around me with their wounded instruments, their stories, and their support these past ten years.

I would never have guessed my life would run through such lovely and fertile territory.

I am so thankful.

Now, back to work!  There’s a whole lot to do around here.
