The REST OF MY LIFE! I don't want to do this kind of work ever again.

No, I haven't read that book, or seen the movie. I'll look for them!

I think you'd especially enjoy "Blackberry Winter". It's a concerto for dulcimer and orchestra. Really cool! Yes women can compose music.
Another thing to look for! Thanks for all the good leads.
