Well, if ASL is out for next year I'll have a good bit more free time and a bit of free money in the coming months. I'm seriously considering taking up hammered dulcimer lessons. My mom loves the instrument, and I very much do, too. I've actually been pondering it since starting into Druidry. One can choose any of seven 'spirals' of study, one of which is music. I thought about studying this instrument. Anywho, there's a prospective teacher not too far away (and another a bit further away that I actually spoke to a few months ago when she was playing at our store).
