I'll come out of my lurking to say hello!

lots happening in my life since we last spoke. I finished my early music certificate at U of T, and got accepted into Tafelmusik's summer baroque program, which is a two week educational crash course. I got a scholarship for half of the fee, which is a big deal because they don't have many scholarships to give out.

I'm also prepping for an audition. a bass spot in a baroque orchestra has opened up and I'm submitting a recording for the tape round. That's taking up most of my time and energy lately.

I think I mentioned last time that a poem I wrote has been accepted for publication in an anthology of works that centre around the themes in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. There's a kickstarter to increase the amount per word for the authors, and to also include an audio book so if people want it I can post it.

I'm also looking at submitting some poems for Poetry Magazine's issue focusing on trans and gender nonconforming people. I think I've picked out the ones I want to submit.

So, lots of stuff. Sometimes it feels like I'm doing nothing, but when I write it out like that I guess things are moving forward.
