It has been an incredible and amazing one hundred weeks of music...I have learned and enjoyed so much your writing as much as the gem itself...I have kept everyone of them...thank-you so much.....love from Mum
reading your pieces and listening to your gems was like reading a really fine memoir - except better. because i knew/know some of the characters, i really looked forward to my thursday night emails. i loved reading about your family memories, your college experiences (especially when you had to add disclaimers), your feelings about
i loved your willingness to share your thoughts about the music that moves/moved you, and through that exploration, tied those thoughts to your feelings about love, religion, family, bonds, children, work.... it all worked, it was all special, and i have truly enjoyed being part of the experience. and you never skimped! sometimes i had to save the emails till later in the week when i had the time to read and to digest. i loved that they were meaty!
please notify me the second you decide on the next series.
It's taken me days to respond to your last Gem.
When it comes right down to it. Is there anything that any one of us can say to you that would mirror what we feel about what you've accomplished? I have my strengths, but expressing how I feel in words has never been one of them.
Thank you for sharing your passion for music with such generosity of heart.
I will miss the gems!!
Your Masterpiece was/is exquisite.
