For the first time in ages, I'm enjoying making music. It clunked me on the head when I did my "twofer" at Consonance. It's not just the (overall favorable) responses to my stuff that have been boosting me; I've been having fun. You hear that? Fun! I've even been taking my laptop unit to work so I can edit MIDI files while I'm installing programs.
To all of you who have helped me get that joy back, I thank you.
