A bit of news for this month! I was contacted to play solo piano for a very small wedding reception. Yay!! A paid gig!!. I’m feeling grateful! The first gig in 2021 is on Sunday May 23rd!
The photos this month I took both in New York City and NH. The contrast of country and city is interesting. First of all just being further south the trees and spring has arrived in NYC and we’re still on hold in NH. The trees are just beginning to bud. Although there are a few daffodils in our front yard the flowers and trees in general are just waking up.
