Day 2


Everyone who wrote to me yesterday, thanks so much!! I could feel this warm wind of prayers and sympathy coming from Buffalo and it made me feel so much better.

The editor I spoke with at the San Diego Union-Tribune yesterday was from Hamburg. He started laughing as soon as I said I was the music critic from Buffalo. Then I told him, "Well, Bob, I'm calling about a countryman of ours, the pianist Leonard Pennario..." Bob was very nice to me. I have to say, everyone** I talked to at all the papers yesterday was extremely gracious. By the way, if anyone needs me today, I am still on call (716-816-6279) and so is Howard (716-833-6111).

Wow! This very charming man from the London Telegraph just called. He said he had been reading this blog and found it "engrossing." Leonard gave a lot of concerts in London and loved it there.

I have to run. I will blog more later. Just wanted to check in and thank everyone. This is a crazy time in my life but I know I will always remember it.
