Karl, I believe that things will only begin to get better and better as time progresses or, at least, that’s my hope for you.

A while (years?) back I once tried to send you a PM, but your inbox was forever full. FWIW it was about how you wrote a piece where in listening to it I found myself almost sitting on a bunk with Thoreau, but with who he is unfettered by physical limitations.
Keep doing what you do. Keep moving forward. Bollocks to the rest of it.

So happy that you were resourceful enough to get medical attention so quickly after the incident, launching you on the road to recovery (rather than the other thing). I anticipate you will largely recover from the impairments you have experienced, and continue to acquire new skills along the way.

No good thread for this, I guess.

Just listened to a mighty fun radio interview with the extraordinary Philip Proctor:

I've begun work on a new piece for Ensemble Aubade, something of a companion piece to Oxygen Footprint. I have indeed been thinking about such a piece since my rehab time at HealthSouth, although the piece as I have started working in earnest now, is of a somewhat different character than my initial conception, or it may be that the original idea may serve for a coda, rather than as the principal material. I am thinking about 4 or 5 minutes for the new piece, which I am calling Swiss Skis.

Swiss Skis is now about half done.

Yep, Karl is, indeed, on a roll. Great to see you’re composing!

Thanks!

Although mere minutes ago, I posted to the blog that I had not decided which piece to take back up, I just resumed work on A Heart So White.
