Blogging to resume at neelybrucemusic

Dear friends—I have not written a blog in a year and a half. This has been a time of great sadness for me. My beloved wife of thirty-six years, Phyllis Ruth Bruce (nĂ©e Behuniak) died on November 8, 2010 of pancreatic cancer. I will write more about Phyllis as it seems appropriate, and as I am able. For a fine memorial piece in the Hartford Courant, let me refer you to:

The power of music is immeasurable. Music has gotten me through the most difficult period of my life, and I am ready to write about it again.
