It was in December 1991 that Clark started to recover from his backache and got the news of his students in University of New Hampshire making it to the much-awaited cruise. Clark even got the offer to play at the Christmas production conducted by Anne Phillips and Bob Kindred. Clark describes this as his second chance of life. Clark realized that things that he used to think were the most important in his life, like playing as many gigs as possible, making a lot of records, making a whole lot of money, he realized that it was more important to be blessed with time. He did more albums and gigs, and even attempted to rekindle his relationship with his son, Hiawatha. At the same time, he made more and more efforts to give jazz lessons to his students. However, with taxes taking a high and Clark's traveling taking a toll on his health, he started looking for a retirement locale.
