After a couple of SUPREMELY lazy weeks, (well-deserved, I might add), occasioned by my work having been cancelled for an entire week due to Snowpocalypse '08 and the five days I took off surrounding the New Year, I'm back to blogging again, so all five people who regularly read Musical Oozings (ok, I shouldn't exaggerate--all three) will be happy to know I'm back at the keyboard, fingers smoking!
James Bash asked me to write a little something about my favorite concerts of last year, so I posted them at NW Reverb, along with James' list of his favorites. I have another beer article coming up soon at Primer Magazine, more stuff at Suite101 I'm sure, and I hope to start archiving BachBeat (the BCC Newsletter I edit) online. I'll keep writing about my quest to learn the viola da gamba, and whatever else comes to mind. I'll be reviewing the Vancouver Symphony's first concert of the New Year here in a couple of weeks.
So happy New Year everyone, to all my new friends and especially old, to all my compadres from past days in my life with whom I am now re-connected thanks to the dubious miracle of Facebook--best of everything in the year to come!
