James Orlando Garcia,

I originally wrote a much angier, sarcastic post, but decided against posting it. Instead I will just say this:

I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but I love being a teacher, and am not at all disappointed that I didn't have a playing career. Your attempts to belittle me didn't work - at least not on me. I have no need or desire to "prove" to your my credentials, or to respond to you allegations that I am a liar. In retrospect, I probably should not have posted about my playing career - it probably came off as bragging, which was not my intent. I responded that way because I felt your original post to me called me into question in a mean-spirited way. "Strange....Being a clarinetist in the Chicagoland area who plays professionally, I have no idea who you are. You must play as a very casual hobby." That struck me as condescending, perhaps I read you wrong. Sarcasm and attitude in posts can be hard to interpret, and sometimes we make assumptions that are incorrect. I'll assume I did.

Your second post to me seems to be calling me a liar, which I'm fine with. If you get some sort of peace by convincing yourself that I never did the things I said, I can live with that.

Perhaps you do not mean to be as condescending to me as it's coming off. I still will offer to meet you to play duets, but not as a challenge, rather as an olive branch. I would much rather have excellent musicians as friends than enemies. I would love to have you come out and work with my clarinet players sometime, or perhaps have you solo with the Crystal Lake Community Band. We would happily welcome you into our bubble. I'm hoping to salvage a friendship out of our exchanges.

Marty
