Um, hi. It's been a minute. (Several, actually.) But I'm finally feeling close to back to normal after what ended up being a fairly intense six or so months, and I'm hoping that I'll be able to get back to some semi-regular blogging.
This is a post I've been meaning to write for a while. It takes its inspiration in part from the musicians who again and again provided some outstanding performances at this past summer's Festival, but it's truly directed at any musician who has committed themselves to pursuing the performance of music as their main career.
