uncle, and bluncle

Yesterday I became an uncle for the first time with the birth of my nephew, Isaac; I also became a bluncle, when my twin brother Dan created his own new blog, whisper key. My brother plays the bassoon, and the way I understand it the whisper key allows a bassoonist to produce a delicate, intimate tone quality without the risk of choking his or her sound. Or maybe it's a way of quickly clearing some of the spit out of the instrument without taking the whole thing apart. Either way, it seems like an apt title for a personal blog.

Dan is a fascinating and very funny person, so you should definitely click over and read him in person. I am planning on writing a bit more about him and being a twin, and posting it here later today.
