Sorry I have not responded sooner.
Thank you for your notes and posts. They mean a great deal.
Yes. Disappointing news for me.
Leonard has asked me to step aside for this part of the tour, possibly longer. Sometimes exploring new forms of Music requires us to make extremely tough choices, regardless of our friendship.
Though my professional plans are uncertain I’ve had a productive year so far.
I hope we meet further on down the road real soon. I will miss you.
Take care and write when you can.
