dear Larry

no apologies necessary. me being protective of a little snits who think they can ask questions without
si'l vous plait et merci needs to learn from da grandfathers / granmothers with wisdom and long book
lists as well as facts from th heart of working like a composer / professor for time immemorial :-) hi,
i have a million questions, do you mind answering several all at once ? i know you must be busy
composing and deciding where you are going to do your phD but high school ends soon and i gotta make
some carreer decisions. i figure disssing a few old composers could stand me in da good books ;-) and
guide me to where i am going ... to find a teacher who can enlighten me .. didn't Ned already tell
Morgan to go fishing ... and didn't s/he ?

go ahead Larry - hit us with your best shot :-) and don't worry about my feelings. i hang with shadow
puppets and they have a few things to say about being phenomologically
aware of 'geeks bearing gifts' :-) or was that Dennis talking as a shadow puppet doing long dis.tance
prat falls :-) LOL

best regards, sylvi macCormac
