It's good to be back

I am reminded of what makes us family. It's more than rehearsals. It's washing dishes for the stream of people coming through, as you would at home. It's working around the bedding situation so that everyone fits under the covers. It's making tons of food so that no one goes hungry. It's making a dash for the table so that you can get some food before it's gone. It's forgetting to make that dash because you were so engrossed in the music. It's being too happy to sleep and too hyper to sit still. It's catching up with old friends and making new ones in the blink of an eye. It's smiling and crying at the same time at the thought that if Taps were given $500 and asked to choose between buying something for AK and heating his house during a cold Providence winter, he'd choose the former....and Nita Di wouldn't bat so much as an eyelash at the notion. Wow, it's good to be back.
