Live Music in Western New York

After passing by this nursery in Lockport, I think it would be cool to add a Statue of Liberty to my front yard. This was one of the many roadside landmarks we passed by on our Buffalo vacation. We also had a chance to check out the Artpark in Lewiston. I knew about the spot […]

Something for Classical Music Fans…

Jennie e-mailed this YouTube Video to me… Brilliant! A comedian rants about how much it sucks to play Pachelbel’s Canon in D on a cello. Recorded live at Penn State, this piece by comedian/musician Rob Paravonian has been a favorite on the Dr. Demento Show. I couldn’t stop laughing my butt-off on this video and […]

Almost Summer

In sickness and in health, Mark and I trudged through these last few weeks of a nasty little virus I picked up at work. We’re still trying to figure out who was Patient Zero in the newsroom. Outside of work, we took it easy – pampering each other and making sure we ate regular meals. […]

Still a beautiful sunset after the rain…

IXTAPA — Yeah, I worked on my latest Nora Roberts book on our private beach at the hotel, in the rain. It reminded me of the Philippines. Simply refreshing. Then I watched the sunset on the balcony. Mark´s pretty sick right now. We think he ate something bad at Il Ferno, on Wed. So, he´s […]

Photo Friday: Still Life

Where faith, nature and art collide in San Francisco. Random moments from my week and weekend. A musical memory from growing up with a church choir. Searching for for grace? Maybe.
