    Hi Manny,

    You're right, I should have taken the time to write that I didn't agree with that one point.

    What I want to continue to do is occasionally offer suggestions to help players who are having trouble with their playing and looking for help. The teachings of Herbert L. Clarke and Claude Gordon have been instrumental (pardon the pun) in my being able to have a pretty successful career as a player. I like passing on to others what has been beneficial to me. Quite often I get nice e-mails and replies telling me I've been of help - and that feels good. I think you are here for the same reasons.

    In this case, the person who is having trouble ("Calliope") has made it clear he doesn't want my help. And that's fine. But it does sadden me a little to have spent as much time as I did not only writing my suggestions to him, but also looking up and creating URL references for more material for him to read, only to read a rather curt reply on his part.

    If you feel I've been intrusive by replying to something in your forum area, I apologize. I just saw someone having a problem with their playing that I once had, and I thought I could be of help.
