Three Thoughts

1. The salmon (see yesterday's post for recipe) last night turned out quite yummy. But I would use more tarragon next time.
2. I was finally able to sit down yesterday and knit after a week long opera break. I love to knit and find it so therapeutic, especially needed now because
3. we lost Mr. Mack yesterday. His passing was peaceful and gentle and he was surrounded by his loving family. Godspeed, John.

Curious as to your identity. . . didn't recognize you in the photo with Alain and Mr. Mack. I am also a student of Mr. Mack's and I was just wondering where you were and who you played with (which opera, etc.)

I really do not want to post all my personal info here - but ask Maryanne - I am Ceci in Texas.

So sorry about your loss. Isn't it nice how therapeutic knitting can be, though?

Thanks, Mer. I just felt this calmness descend over me last night when I picked up my little yellow sock. It will all be okay.

There is a beautiful write-up in today's Cleveland Plain Dealer.

If you'd like to have a "hard copy," I can try to figure out a way to get it to you. He sounded like a wonderful man.

Thinking of you, Ceci. That was a lovely write-up that Kim linked too. It looks like he had a long and fruitful life that touched many.
