Hi John,

please, call me Tim! :-), and I am very well, thank you. I hope you are too.

To answer your question; I work at the University of New Hampshire in a building called "Morse Hall." It houses the University's "Center for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space." It so happens that Morse Hall - though not designed to be a music venue - has really great acoustics in its central area which is open across all four floors of the building. As a result it has become usual for the institute to seek out musical acts to perform lunchtime concerts. There used to be a budget for it, but now it's done on a volunteer basis. Strangely, so far this semester, there haven't been any performances, but ...

Late last summer when I was a relatively new hire, I was "caught" carrying my guitar back to my office by the guy who schedules the performances. I had been outside blowing off some steam with it, doing a bit of noodling on the lawn in front of the building. He began to "interrogate" me about what kind of music I play and the next thing I know he's asking if I'd be willing to give a performance. I told him I'd send him a link to my YouTube channel, and that if he liked what he saw I'd agree to perform. He liked it, so I gave a lunchtime concert late last October. He has since asked me to play again, but I haven't yet been given a date.

One potential problem - I have a medical procedure upcoming that could put me out of action for a bit, though I'm not really sure how long, so depending on when I'm asked to play I may have to postpone. Anyway, if there's anyone out there in corfid world who lives nearby and wants to try to make it, I'll make a point of announcing a date when and if I have one.

Thanks for asking, and best wishes, Tim
