Collaboration. This week has been another reminder of what a wonderful thing that is; I am constantly enchanted by the power of what we can do together, the magic in the air when artists communicate with each other, as friends, and then the most fantastic ingredient, an audience, arrives, and DEMANDS a deeper level of inter-communication. Thanks to all my friends in Munich for reminding me of this, and to that city, which has enriched my life for so many years.
