I haven't had the opportunity to upload normal "life" photos for awhile now. In fact, I haven't been able to do anything, really, and only had the last two days to even attempt to get some work done and to see some friends.
Violinist Chee-Yun came into town yesterday for a short festival in Sonoma. Geoff Nuttall picked her up from the airport in my old Volvo with the stolen left turn signal and we met up at a Mexican joint in Glen Park for lunch with Stephen Prutsman and Vienna Teng -- quite the musical group! I laughed a lot; Stevie and Chee-Yun have known each other for a long time and were taking jabs at each other pretty much non-stop.
Earlier in the week I had a meal with Andy and Carrie Manson, who are in town for a little vacation. Also, there's a photo of Victor Alexander in the mix. :) [see some photos]
