It's been too long. And there's a lot of news. Oh boy. A lot.
But not to worry. We will distribute said news in discrete quanta, over a period of time. First, enjoy the above Easter morning picture of grandfather Donald and grandson Niko. Also, after years of hoping and waiting, my father's music was played on WUNC's famous program Back Porch Music! So all across the state, in kitchens and on porches and in cars headed home, North Carolinians heard this lovely song, written and recorded by Dad in 2006.
