(insert Tarzan yell here)

Never before have I felt, with such earnestness, the need to type a really good rendition of the classic Tarzan yell. Will you please be so kind as to imagine one issuing forth from your computer right now…
go ahead, I’ll wait.

Thank you.

I must say, I’m a bit stupefied by this month’s calendar. It’s all such a delicious flurry of fun! Please notice all the unusual bits. It’s always great to have some seasoned community support around events with the general muggle public.

And, WOW!!! I am typeless (versus speechless) with gratitude and amazement that so many of you showed up for Kalliope’s debut performance last night! Sharon, Jamie and I had so much fun sharing all that music with you and I’m truly humbled by your support and attention and enjoyment of the evening. Let’s do that again, too, eh?
