These are a few of the simple words of the people who stopped to listen. I have often read them when I grew tired of the life I live as a Bard, for they remind me of the reason I do this, the people I play for, and the gift my music can be for them. They represent the many more kind comments I got from so many people, most of whom never wrote in that book when it was there or after it was gone. I think these comments say more than any number of recommendations or good reviews, and they mean a lot to me. Thank you, these words and so many more like them have helped me keep on through the long years.
