Blog neglect

The winds of change are upon us. Upon me actually. Hence the blog neglect. Without going into detail, suffice it to say I will be moving into the field of dog training in the upcoming months, and music teaching will become a part time occupation. This seemingly came out of nowhere, yet lots of things precipitated it - the economy and its affects on my school, the changes my school is going through and the fact that I no longer fit in/agree, seriously decreased passion for teaching, discovering that passion resurrected in dog training, and other things.

My last day teaching full time is next Wednesday, after which I will teach here part time, pursue my business in dog training, and do other part time jobs to fill the gaps. Alpacas and fiber arts will still hold an important place in my life, even more so now that I will have more time to be with the animals and to work on my fiber arts.

Meanwhile, here's a pic of our new addition, Simon. Sorry, he's not an alpaca, but he's still cute.
