  2. G’Day Tom,

    My hard drive blew up and I lost your e-mail address. I’ve had several positive comments from people who have read the piece you wrote about me on your blog. Any chance dropping me a line so I can fill you in on the latest? Briefly, I’ve moved to Mittagong, still teaching music, but I am working on a large landscape painting commission. Do you want to catch up for a lunch?

    I hope this finds you and finds you well.

And for anyone reading this who wants to read the post I wrote about you last year (May 1, 2014), Portrait of the Artist as a middle-aged muso, here’s a link: http://wp.me/p1Ytmx-gH Good luck, Tom.

  5. Tom very moving tribute to Sam and i was sorry i was unable to get to St Swithun’s … my email address has changed – cant see how to let u know other than through here .. it’s now “sallygoodman1@bigpond.com” and no longer sally@goodmanagement.org. Hope you’re well. Cheers

    • Hi Sally, Thanks for your kind words. Sam deserved many tributes and a great sendoff, all of which he received. The service was excellent, as was the wake. Sue and Caroline and the family were very generous, just like Sam. Cheers, Tom PS I sent you an email.
