Cape Breton here I come!

Tickets bought, passport en route, B&B's being investigated. I'm looking forward to this trip!

My recent increase in interest in dance has made look at Highland Dance tunes & sets on pipes last night for the first time in ages. I really ought to focus on building a repertoire for that for a while. I've also spent some time on flute, trying to improve my embouchure, with a little help from my friend Rosemary Gano.

One of the things I need to start doing, maybe on lazy weekend mornings, is to begin trying my hand at composing tunes. I have, alas, but one to my name, Carolyn Lentz's reel. I'd like to finally get an air ("Lament for the Death of John Schroeter"), a march ("The GSA Men's Team at Beer-Bike"), and a strathspey ("Rich Darzawhatsit's") to have a complete Valhalla set.

I figure the more I write, the easier it'll be. And I'll have some of my own tunes to mix into the Devil's Tailors' repertoire!
