This house concert featured Sabir Khan on sarangi accompanied by my brother Peter Altenberg on tabla. The performance was on April 17, 2018, in Inverness, California. I thought this excerpt from the concert was a fitting way to celebrate our mothers. My mother passed away on March 18 this year. She would have been 86 today, May 11, 2018. Sabir-ji’s mother passed away just over a year ago, on March 17, 2017. And Mother’s Day is in a couple of days, so we have another reason to celebrate our mothers. Dream BIG.

We pay a visit to the famous Town Musicians of Bremen.
While Peter recovers, we hang out with various friends and family from around the world. Here we have a visit from the almost famous musician b. mossman, who joins us almost daily from Denmark while Kalyan computes in the background.
Daily visits to the physical therapist is pretty lightweight compared to the usual routine for recovery from surgery in Germany, going to reha, for a full-time, 3 week stay at a rehab facility that includes exercise, meals and lots of relaxation. Sounds more like a resort.
Peter's PT includes a daily visit to Coffee Corner, where Kalyan shows us the latest iPhone features.
We visit the hip surgeon today, who did the hip joint replacement on Peter about 10 days ago. Dr. Rasmussen loves to explain everything about artificial hip joints (especially in English) and he likes how everything is healing up. Peter is just happy that the surgery part is over. Next we visit the physical therapist. More photos at markaltenberg.com/hip
