Parting is such sweet sorrow.....

Even though this reed has some obvious flaws...at least to an oboist...this was one great reed! Every now and then you get one that you would like to use forever, or at least bronze. This was one of those. Deep and rich, flexible.....singing quality...Unfortunately, they don't tend to last much longer than a few good rehearsals or concerts. I'm going to miss you little reed. (sniff sniff)





Here is my reed thread drawer. It looks suspiciously unorganized like my yarn room.....



I heard on NPR recently that unorganization could mean you are just creative. Did I already tell you that? Well.....I think there must be some truth in that. Right? Right???

Nice looking reed there, SillyEwe. Got any more like that you would want to part with?

Hmmm - I think you need more thread........

I've seen the "wall of shame" and it's not as bad as that drawer though I suspect, there's much, much more yarn in that house than what you showed us ;-)

I have a little sign in my livingroom that reads, Creative minds are seldom tidy.

I agree! Creative minds are seldom tidy! My yarn stash is loosely organized, but I could tell you were everything is!

Glad you're posting again! :) How's the knitting...?!

Oh, that drawer looks plenty tidy! Every time I clean and get everything perfectly organized I end up in a creative frenzy. Two days later I have a great new project and look around my house, shaking my head, and thinking - what have I done??? ;-)

my sincere condolences, if there's anything I can do at such a hard time please dont hesitate to ask. I have the ingredients for mexican casserole on standby, and I know you love my jello salads. Words can not explain how much that reed meant to not just you, but to all of us. That reed touched thousands of lives, never asking for anything in return, always wanting to give more. What an inspiration! and what a testament to healthy living.. (what?!?!?!)anyways, I truly hope that my life is as full of naive beauty, generous spirit, and unconditional love, as that of the late great rich and flexible reed. Truly, a life cut short.


haha hah ha h ah a ha h ha help me I'm bored. what are you doing this weekend? come play with me.
