Crazy times...

Here it is August.  Time is flying by us. It doesn't care that I care how fast it is passing us by. Taking us on its trip no matter where we go and where we end up.  

I will be traveling the next week with our daughter who will be 18 soon. Attending a wedding, visiting friends, and family .. and get this:  DRIVING! Normally I like to fly - but this is going to be a fun road trip with her.  I am sure we will have some silly times.  I will make sure my phone is all charged up and ready to roll. So be ready for all the photos, maybe video and crazy times I am sure we will have! 

Make sure you keep an eye or two out, we may drive by you and you could end up on my Facebook, Twitter or Instagram feed.. wouldn't that be a riot?!

Enjoy the rest of your Summer!

Kori Carothers

A musician's path to her/his muse is sometimes an easy one. Other times, it is filled with potential pitfalls or unexpected obstacles. Kori Linae Carothers faced just that when, during a kindergarten health screening at the age of 5, it was discovered she was deaf in her left ear. Her young peers found out and the teasing began. In addition, throughout elementary and high school, Kori was constantly told she would never become a musician. Undeterred, she kept learning and practicing, never surrendering her dream. Despite these discouragements, Carothers was passionate about her calling and now, years later, she is an acclaimed pianist and keyboard player with four albums to her credit. Clearly, she is an example of a person following her muse with courage, humor, and determination. - Bill Binkelman
