I’m moving! The short version: my wife and I were presented with a wonderful opportunity to move to Kailua Kona, Hawaii next year (we’re aiming for May 1, 2019).
The longer version. I’ve always considered myself a “fair weather” composer, and I mean that quite literally—I’m most inspired when I can sit outside, soak in the sun (or shade) while working. Unfortunately, living in the Seattle area created difficulties for me nine months of the year, so this move (once we’re fully settled) will be very helpful.
