    The double “very” is always encouraging.

    It’s very, very encouraging!

    When a man walks on,
    With an ample-long baton,
    Accompanying that lieder song
    You get sprung!

    Tom has been devoted to his brother and finally having more of a public presence rather than just being talked about behind his back. Here’s hoping the masestro will be as fit as a fiddle for the new season.

    I do hope he is going to be fine this time, but I wonder if he shouldn’t take more time resting because the problem reoccurred as soon as he got back to work after the first surgery. Levine seems such a driven personality that I wouldn’t be surprised if he is pushing his body when he shouldn’t. I bet you he is going crazy with his reduced activities.
