9.5 years to be exact. Time flies when you're having fun! ;D Had some big changes in my life - like meeting my wife in 2014 and marrying her in 2016, new job around the same time, and a decent amount of travel until Covid happened.  I also took a rather long break from classical music for no particular reason. But I've been listening to it again for a while now, so it seems like a good time to come back to GMG.

Sounds like life has been good for you overall (obviously less Covid becoming a fact of life to deal with)?  We haven't met before, but in any event welcome back and am looking forward to hearing about your musical explorations and sharing what you have learned.  :)

Oh my goodness! Welcome back Todd. So nice to see you on here again!  :)

You have been away so long...you probably have no clue who "OrchestralNut" is.   :D  I'll let you figure it out.  ;)
