Dear Mom and Dad,

I am writing from music camp, but actually now I am on a hike in the forest. The clarinet section decided to take a break from rehearsals, and we took a hike.  The problem is that we could hear the camp, but we couldn’t see it.  The section leader who has been here at Camp Music in the Woods forgot the way back.  So I took  out my harmonica, you know that I am never without some kind of musical instrument and I played a tune and someone came out to get us.    Was I happy to see him! Well usually I don’t like him because he plays the trombone and hits my chair during Band rehearsals, but today I was glad to see him.

Everything is fine now, and we won’t be taking any more unguided hikes!

Musically yours,

And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve an…
