Thread Name: Kytrad's award concert
George and I are travelling again- just got the laptop operating, and am trying to figure out this "new" Mudcat- wonderful. Thanks, Max and all. And sincere thanks to all you friends who supported me at the Awards Concert at Lisner, and said such kind things afterward, and to Fortunato who gave lodging and friendship to my friend from Kentucky. An onstage anecdote for you: As we were all lined up at the opening, I stood to the right of Kevin Burke, and whispered to him that I sometimes had trouble walking backward, and to catch me if I started to fall on my face after advancing two steps to bow to the audience, then step back in line, as I was introduced. When I actually did take those backward steps, I felt this very light touch in the middle of my back, and looked sideways to see Kevin grinning at me. Sure enough, in the photos taken by George, you see Kevin's hand reaching out to be there for me, just in case-   talk about support!!!

Love to all,    Jean
