The other good is that I have been able to knit a few times this week, thus progressing a little bit on GG. Here we are right now:
The bad is that my mentor has been diagnosed with a very fast growing brain cancer. They will perform surgery next week in hopes of prolonging his life for a few more months. I have been getting daily updates that help me and all the other out-of-towners feel connected (he is 1500 miles away). Our oboe community is really pulling together with the numerous visits and phone calls and cards. We don't think he knows who most of us are at this point, but the efforts seem to keep him in good spirits which is what really matters. Thank you for keeping him in your thoughts and prayers.
That's all for now, gotta go to work.
