Already Halloween...

Time has fugited along, and we have gone through one bag of candy already tonight. One girl came as a puppet theater, with what looked like a doggy and a cow on the stage; I asked her which one got the candy, and she said the cow.
It was clearish and cold, we can see our breaths tonight.
Lots of gym climbing lately, to keep me sane and fit.

The past many days have culminated in a wonderful musical event. Our concert band, which is LGBTQQ&A - we are "A's", or allies - just wound up the hosting of an international LGBA conference. We've been rehearsing the music since September, and spent a whirlwind few days here learning to play with the rest of the over 20 band folks who participated. We got to perform in McCaw Hall here in Seattle, a gorgeous venue in which the Seattle Opera performs. Wonderful acoustics, huge stage, four talented directors from Seattle, New York, San Francisco and Phoenix; a once in a lifetime experience. More later. I need to crash.

Much music to get under our fingers and into our heads, for less than two weeks from now; well, maybe the size of the group will make up for the dropped notes...
