I hope you are all doing well and I just want to say thank you all for being in my life and for sharing your musical journey and friendship with me. I enjoy our time together and connection so very much and am looking forward to spending more time with you through the coming winter months. Whatever you celebrate this December may it be filled with love and those you hold close in your heart.

Love,
Richard
