        Yes, Newtown weighs heavily on all of us all around the world. It is a senseless tragedy which calls upon us to change much of what we do as a society. Please God we will heed that call.

        I am just trying to think “why”? All in God’s good time will we understand, no doubt, not before. In the meantime, prayers for all those affected.

      I steal what time I can. With a full-time job, a new house, and a two-year-old, my days are often too full for any kind of hobby. I get in enough practice time to maintain my skill, anyway.

      I started playing the violin three years ago, when one of my wife’s relatives gave me an old violin to fix up. I wish I had started in fourth grade, when I really wanted to learn but was afraid of looking like a sissy. I hope I can at least give my son more self-confidence than I had, especially since he has much better violinist’s fingers than I do. Meanwhile, I’ll learn to play as well as I can in the time that’s given to me.

    I arrived in Santiago de Compostela in June and spent four days there enjoying some (atypical!) fine sunny weather. My second day I was loafing in the main square in front of the cathedral, seeing who I might see that I had met walking, when I noticed that a grand piano was being unloaded. Sure enough, a few hours later, there was a free concert with two pianists. It was an unexpected joy- one of many street-music treats in the time I had in Santiago.
