Who is Durham? Where does she range? For what it's worth, George, for many years I practiced the piano every day for multiple hours. Tedium? Hmm. Challenging physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. You get there were days I'd have rather full in the blank. And if course days I saved and fished, played golf or whatever. And on the other hand I spent about ten years tying at least ten dozen trout flies six days a week close to year around. Same temptation. In each case the decision to sit down and do the work resulted in the work, the music, the materials, urging me on. And getting outside of my own comfort zone was always useful, dropping firm preconceptions and seeing where the adventure would go. Just the a fly, good, bad or indifferent. We'll all still love you.

 

I've begun that Durham Ranger Dale...thought I'd let you know I've accepted this challenge and I'm anxious to get this one done...and into more.

 

I can assure you the feeling is mutual toward everyone as well.


Petri Heil,

George
