The Panther Wants to Come Back...Every Day

The panther's* mother informs me that her daughter wants to come back every day.  Since that is impractical she wonders whether we couldn't skype.

This is interesting.

No, we can't skype.  Even if we could we couldn't, if you get my drift.

It is a matter of focus, which is in the room, in the air, in the tension between the child and myself and Schumann (or whichever not physically present except in his or her music it be).  This, dear panther, is not skypeable.

New word.

New generation.

New demands on us musicians to keep it live.
