Hello Good People, I do have the ability to get dressed up but I also put some energy into not letting this happen too often. My idea of the ideal setup is swim trunks, 73 degrees ocean water and a sky full of sun. Kauai 2008 anyone?

The big deal for this week is a show we’re planning for Monday night at Cal State San Marcos with my string group. There’s a wonderful theatre at the college and yes indeed, infinite parking. Let’s see, some of the other perks for those willing to part from their cozy homes on an early Monday eve. Well, have you discovered the newly opened shortcut through San Elijo Hills that not only is a beautiful drive but also streamlines the road-time and empties you out right at the college entrance? Sweetness! But the real factor for this gig is that the group is kicking it and we’re inspired and practiced up. Still floating from the last show, we’re anxious to dive in again and see what the hidden wisdom of those pile of notes have to offer. Look below for the details and we hope to see you there…

adios, Peter
