Dream Becomes Reality

January 8, 2007 at 10:50 AM

What happened? It seems like somewhere in the course of the past year, it grew up all around me, like a booming suburb. The reality of a dream takes up a lot more space than it does on paper.

Sometimes, I think my dreams are so big they will swallow me whole. Not that this bothers me. I would rather that, than not.

That's good, I think...

Emilina you fill your head with dreams that don't happen to people like us.

It is good. I just haven't had time to putter around here in a while, and judging by the looks of the upcoming rehearsal and performance schedule, it doesn't look like I will be having time any time soon.

Hey guys, completely random thought, but in case anyone was worried by abnormally warm temperatures in the Lower 48, I would like to assure you that we still have cold up here. Like -30 cold. So stop worrying and enjoy it.

Hey Neil, **it happens. We are on the east side of a continent, that makes for variability and extremes. Remember, 2002 was a hot winter, too, but 2003 and 4 were extremely cold. 1995 and 1996 were very snowy, as were 2004 and 2005. It just goes around and around.

Yes, it's cold here, but they are calling for a high of 1 degree tomorrow.

We're having a heat wave...

See you at rehearsal tonight? I'll be late.

Normal is just an average of a bunch of abnormals.

Keep warm and keep dreaming.

I don't know about you all, but I dream of playing the pipe organ! (If I ever actually take up a keyboard instrument for real, it'll be the organ, that's for sure.)

We're enjoying the dry roads over here in Vermont, but the ski areas are having a heckuva time just trying to keep any trails open at all, and I'm waiting to go ice skating again!
