Programming Note

I’ve been sidelined by a wicked bit of flu for over a week now. It left me with barely enough energy to do much and, now that I’m starting to be up and around again, I’ve been catching up on things I was otherwise unable to do during that time.

Music also helps me to get through scenes that I find emotionally difficult.  I find it easier to write the scene away with…
