So great to meet up with ye again, man. Always quick with the most generous and kind spirited remarks. Thank you.

True, I have been away, but not exactly by choice. Following the lose of my guitar playing hand to nerve damage, complicated surgery seemed to have failed after the trial observation period. Then 6 more months went by and out of the blue, the unexpected began to happen. My fingers had been frozen in position, with the left pinky sticking out like a bolted-on flag pole. Just as sudden as the collapse of the hand, one day I began moving the pinky toward and away from the rest of the hand. Then the rest of the fingers began spreading out. I can't play the guitar like I used to, but no one can say that I can't play at all.

Expecting the worst, a lot of my time away was spent beefing up my right hand keyboard chops. I banged into a bunch of pros on SoundCloud who began asking me for arrangements and one thing led to another. Now I'm really over committed to these guys. Thia planet wasn't designed right. It really needs a 38 hour day.

Trevor, take care of yourself and I hope to be back soon.

wow! Dean, you never disappoint! Everything you touch turns to gold.. (you should change your forum name to MIDAS)

wonderful arrangement.. I can't even wrap my brain around what you've done here (but that's my usual reaction to your showcase posts)

You should be famous.

Man, it's great to run into you again. This is the kind of flattery that always leaves me speechless. But, as always, you always throw in something that provokes a response. This time it concerns fame. Brother, if I saw fame coming at me, I'd turn around and run the other way and wonder what went wrong.

I'd have something in common with Justin Bieber, which would be unacceptable. I'd lose my privacy. My phone is ringing off the hook all day long as it is, with robo-calls, telemarketers, crackpots, and all kinds of appeals for money. Just based on my phone activity, I already am famous!!

No, I'll stick with a small circle of people I respect for their qualities. I'm thankful to have yours, and you can be sure you have mine.

Such kindness in your words. I've missed you too, my friend. I started what I thought was a casual involvement in SoundCloud, which eventually got out of control. I buried myself in promises - "yeah, sure I can do this tune for ya ...", "You want arrangement for that, hey, no problem ..." - which then turned into commitments. I really never recovered and now I'm always trying to catch up.

I can't believe I lucked out in this way. I never work so hard as during my professional life. I'm looking down on Cloud 9. And, thank you for your generous remarks on You Send Me.
