    I was discussing the harp with a nice, but non-musical lady the other day, and after a while she asked me, “Do you play well?” I was a little taken aback–but I just said, “Um, yes”, and moved on. Maybe that was a bit vain–I’m not the best but I’m certainly not bad–anyway I thought the whole thing a bit odd and rather funny.

    One time I was playing in a coffee house and an old gentleman stayed and listened to me for two hours.

    There have been so many wonderful compliments over the years! I mentioned to a woman I knew who had heard me a play a couple times, that I was considering taking a harp music for healing course and she said, “You’re already doing that!”.
