Martin, I'm sorry!  I mostly just put it there so that I could find it again when I wanted to finish reading it, but I'm glad you're enjoying it too.

This is great advice. I especially like this sentence, from #20: "What [people] want to know is already somewhere inside of them." I believe that fervently - we all know what we want, or need, or how to solve a problem. We just need some time and space and support to find the solution that is right for us.

I would also add this: Stop thinking you know what people are thinking or feeling - about you, about themselves, about situations, about anything. You don't know, and you shouldn't assume.

I have a tattoo of the first letters of the title of this song. That's how much I love it.

If you work in or care about public radio, podcasting, or online audio, I strongly recommend Stan Alcorn's terrific piece Is This Thing On? Why Audio Never Goes

Song of the Day: http://snd.sc/ov3J8f
Topical for a runner, but also a good song.

Song of the Day: Bon Iver covering Bjork. The horn section sounds great, and yes, that is the trombone player beatboxing.

Describe yourself in one word: does not follow instructions.
Introduction
In order to be sure you have found the correct Donna, know these things:

 - I like music a whole lot.  I'm always seeking out new music, and music that is new to me.  I play the piano, like you see me doing in my profile picture.  Just like that.  I used to play the trombone, but that hasn't happened for awhile, and sometimes I try things on the accordion.
 - I am also a huge supporter of the CBC, and especially its web radio station, Radio 3.  I am very active in the Radio 3 community, and you can often find me commenting on the blog that is part of the Radio 3 website.  My R3 profile is here.
 - I love theatre, and have been involved in many productions over the years - mostly musicals, mostly as a rehearsal/pitband pianist and keyboardist.  I've also worked as a conductor of pit bands.
 - I love long-distance running, and so far have completed 4 marathons (including the Boston Marathon, which was one of the highlights of my life so far), about 10 half-marathons, and a bunch of smaller races.  Sometimes I get excited about running and try to convince everyone to do it.  I'm sorry about that, but I kind of can't help it.
 - I have degrees in Music and in English/Theatre.  I currently work in an academic music library, which is pretty cool.  I am also the co-founder of a theatre company called Rogue Theatre.
 - I am the co-founder and administrator of a website called Shapenotemusic.com, which is a resource on folk and world music, by fans and for fans. you should check it out, if you like that kind of thing.
