Dear friends,

Some of us are gifted with riches, while others of us are just getting by. Some of us are gifted with good health, while others of us may be struggling with illness and pain. Yet for all of us, the day is the same 24 hours long. Given who we are and what we have, how will we spend those hours? American poet Carl Sandburg challenges us all when he says, "Time is the most valuable coin in your life. You and you alone will determine how that coin will be spent."

I'm very grateful for each of you who spent some of your valuable time on October 17 to celebrate my birthday at Mambo Inn's JZ Brat show! This month, I'm spending my valuable time preparing for Flute Super Session 2017 and my Autumn Brazilian Jazz gig. Hoping you can spare some of your valuable time to join me!

yours, Steve

Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. (Psalm 90:12)
