I dreamt I received a long, flat wooden box in the mail. Inside the box were...
...parcels and parcels of reed cane in little cloth and plastic covered packages. I needed to cut them out but the procedure was murky and I accidentally cut more than a few in half before discovering that I was doing it wrong. BUT, there were TONS of pieces of cane, little wooden tools, and even some oboe cane. It was BEAUTIFUL! Some were from rigotti, some rieger, a few albion (blech) and a ton of Medir. Finally, I find the invoice and the entire package is a “Welcome to Medir” package with a price tag of $163! I think in my dream, it was worth it. I had cane coming out of my ears.
