Elaine di Falco on Hugh Hopper

Elaine di Falco writes on her times with Hugh Hopper.

I had known for a long time that though Hugh might not have been a frequently active part of my life, the parts of my life that did involve him meant a great deal to me. Some of the following details are a little foggy; others are vivid. It’s been years, but this is the story of how he touched my life.

Advocate for the Arts

Mostly of US interest.

Advocate for the Arts allows you to email your representatives and show your support for the arts in the Economic Stimulus Package now in the Senate (recently, most funding for the arts was eliminated).

It is fast, easy, and for a good cause. Thanks to Greenleaf Music for the tip.
