    I realize that asking such questions is a necessary activity for
musicologists and other strange creatures of the musical deep, but I enjoy
being able just to play the music and to listen to the music, to shut down
whatever sounds especially nonsensical that day, and to admire whatever
appeals to me.  

    I enjoy you, though, Rob.  I'm just being a curmudgeon for Beebe who has
learned to enjoy owls.  And peaceful small towns.
