Unbelievable. April already. Just three months into the year and I've already done shows in six countries. I must be out of my mind...
This will be quick, because I'm desperately trying to make deadlines for everything from my upcoming commencement speech at Warren Wilson College to my next shows with Karla Bonoff. And as many of you know, I'm having rotator cuff surgery in mid-May, which means I've had to cram everything I planned to do all summer into the next month. Impossible!
In the meanwhile, I got to attend a taping of Big Bang Theory and sit in Sheldon's spot... started a project with the incredible Dave Grusin and the equally talented Monica Mancini... had dinners with my pals Kevin Eubanks, and Akira Tsukahara... recorded my autobiography for release this fall via Audible.com...spent a fantastic afternoon at the home of Harlan & Susan Ellison... and broke bread with Captain America.
Who says life gets dull after 60?!
Hoping you are all the same...
