Music Teacher Without Compare.
Our family was so fortunate to have Margaret Howard for two generations as their music teacher, a rare and beautiful breed. The instruments that passed through our family were, flute, euphonium, baritone, trombone and clarinet. Second generation; euphonium, baritone and trombone. Junior band, intermediate band and senior band as well as music camp were attended, what a wonderful education. Thank you Margaret.
I have to post something ceramic. I saw this young Australian artist Juz Kidson's work recently and it has stayed hauntingly in my mind.
Speaking of madness, here is a photo that I love. Every time I look at it I laugh out loud. Thank goodness there are mad people in the world!!!!
