My thesis is coming along although its a rough process.

I've been applying to lots and lots of things so I hope so too! Thanks, Bifei!

Yes! We need to schedule a day for Skype, let me know what works for you, especially since...aren't you in Australia now? :-D

you're not going to learn anything from me.  i could learn tons from you though.  i sort of muddle my way through every piece i make. i have no formal training at all.  i've seen your work!  you should apply.  i think you don't realize how good you are and shouldn't sell yourself short.  just remember one thing, bifei.  the worst that can happen is they say no and you are no worse off than where you started.  nothing ventured, nothing gained.  these are wise words.  i'm going to tell jennifer to talk you into applying.  now watch out for the big gun.  you will be at SNAG this year?

hey bifei,

i think you are a member of snag, but this just came thru riveting news.  maybe you do/don't know about it?

Life has many layers - like lasagna.

I've been absent from these pages for the summer while I started a new book and concentrated on getting some flute projects out the door. This month I've actually (gulp) taken a spare bag or two of time to myself and done sweet fork all. What a treat that was. It's been at least a century since I could live a couple of weeks without feeling compelled to do anything.Well, not nothing... (How can any self respecting obsessive compulsive polymath really do nothing ?) That would be unconscionable.…See More
