This has been one of the most heart-wrenching weeks of work for me in a while. One story to share.

These appointments generally last close to 4 hours, and much of my 26 pages of paperwork doesn't take lots of brain cells.

Peyton Tochterman opened the evening with a fabulous set.  I have enjoyed his music in the past, but I think this set was my favorite yet.   Last year at Woodyfest, his was the only CD I purchased (I had said I wasn’t going to buy any, but such is the life of a music junkie).  His stories were both funny and moving. …
