Easing The Pain

I’ve been laid up since the beginning of the week with (sadly recurrent) sciatica of some sort, only able to stand / walk independently for more than a couple steps as of this morning. Today’s mail brought me a major dose of pain relief, in the form of my new F#Minor red cedar flute, hand-crafted by Butch Hall, who has become my favorite flute maker (along with Odell Borg of High Spirits Flutes). 

Here’s a taste (not me playing):


Here’s The Full Truth, Though:  I owe my healing–I owe everything–to the patience and the loving kindnesses always shown to me by My Beloved Dr Sandra Stanley, without whom there is no music.

  1. Ron, I’m so sorry you’re poorly and hope you’re soon on the mend. That flute has a gorgeous tone. Could that have something to do with resonance from the tunnel? It doesn’t seem to have a very large range – is it even an octave? I’d love to have a play on it.
