A short explanation for the silence
I got married. Will that do?
Sorry. Anyway, I'm back now. I did do some other things too, like some spots on clarinettist Arun Ghosh's forthcoming album; one bizarre, person-heavy session [and subsequent gig] for the Heliocentrics; and some absolutely superb work in Leicester for Creative Partnerships back at the Caldecote school, where I think I could stay forever. Oh, I had some meetings too, and have set up a small mini-site for the Derby Cultural Diversity Arts Network, for which I'm on the steering group.
Other than that, it's just been organising caterers, families, friends, my own head, and convincing someone who's totally worth it that I'm all worth it as well. And it all paid off, with no ill side-effects!
Now, if you'll excuse me... I have some happiness to dive into.
