Valentine’s Day 2003

Holiday 2009

I’ve learned a great deal about living life from my folks, and we’re extremely lucky to be celebrating their 60 years together this year.

Sweet Robert

One of the earliest pieces I still have. Written for my good friend Robert’s 40th birthday, it is matched in structure with the piece I wrote for his 50th. I had sworn I wouldn’t go to New York to celebrate, in part because of lack of funds. Glad I remembered what was important!
