    i guess the chickens are coming home to roost.
    simply, i've lost all feeling and strength in my left hand.
    i had to get my son to cut my right hand fingernails last week as i couldn't use the clippers.
    i'm seeing my doc next week to see what, if anything can be done to mitigate things,
    at least slow them down. seems like i might be writing poetry again as opposed
    to writing and playing music. sad times.
    this is a Billie Holiday song.
    Hi Jon, I don’t often peek into the Island thread so only just saw your post from late October. I hope your visit with the doctor went ok. I’m sorry about your hand. I just wanted to say that watching and listening to you play, especially when I first picked up a ukulele, has been an inspiration. Before watching you play I didn’t think what you do was possible.

    Even if you are unable to play anymore I hope you pop into the seasons once in a while. And I’m unbelievably grateful to you for having shared so much of your gift with us.

    (I also now feel like I should clarify, you are still an inspiration.)

    Popping in with a River song before Tootler's Season ends. It was recorded 3 weeks ago (I anticipated the theme lol!) so isn't eligible for the actual Season. I send it out to all Hoosiers (who will all know why when they hear the melody).

    Down in Yon Forest. A traditional carol. A manuscript from sometime after 1450 was found during the restoration of an old house in 1862. A virtually unchanged version was collected in Castleton, Derbyshire by Vaughan Williams in 1908. I love the modal melody which along with the lyrics speak of a long gone era.

    I have several ukuleles in various sizes and am not planning on getting any more...

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    I bought myself a birthday present. Can you guess what it is?
    This seemed an appropriate way to try it out. It's quite hard to put down, but I have to go to a meeting shortly, which is far too much like a grown up.



    Hopefully I'll have something more appropriate for the bleeding season soon.

    I saw Gerald had posted this a couple of days ago and begged to be included. Thank you, Gerald!
