Rotator Cuff - like new!

You may have noticed I haven't been posting much.  That's because I've been busy and preoccupied getting ready for rotator cuff surgery.  I really wanted to keep a visual diary, but...the best laid plans...
Waiting at the doctor's office 
I used my iPhone to take a photo while she drew a blood sample!

Just before surgery
Then, a final sketch while waiting to go in for surgery, tube stuck in my hand.  Left hand, which fortunately is my drawing hand, and the surgery was on my right shoulder. (Lucky me!)

SPAC Saratoga Jazz Fest

Relaxing to some excellent tunes from Christian McBride, Lisa Fischer, Hiromi and so many other superb musicians.  We didn't stay for Diana Krall Sunday night, as we all had to get up for work the next day.  It was a perfectly sunny and very hot day!  For me (the sketcher) I really appreciated the fact that most people were kind enough (and logy from the heat!) to sit still long enough for me to sketch.
No musician sketches yet, but that Hiromi is one amazing pianist!  She is so full of joy and energy that she jumps up, looks like she's just making a noisy mess when she bangs her forearm on the keys (no 'tickling' the ivories for her!), and the sounds she makes are mesmerizing and wonderful to see and hear.

Stopped reading long enough to make a comment

Texting in between sets.  Maybe bragging to friends about where he is...

Foot tappin' music all two days!
