A unique ensemble presented a lively and lovely John Williams arrangement of the Shaker hymn "Simple Gifts".  A Jew, a black man, a white woman, and an Asian played beautifully, not an easy thing to do outside in the cold!  Someone more adept than I has already posted this performance on...

A couple of Sundays ago I took a bike ride around San Francisco and was both moved and disappointed by what I saw. San Francisco is certainly a city that contains multitudes. One of the things that I was disappointed by was that a couple of blocks from my house I noticed that the façade of a lovely...

My body is speaking to me again. A couple of days ago, I took a dance class after about two months of dancing only in my bedroom for brief, yet energetic spurts of a minute or so. This hour-and-a-half long release of energy was an experience beyond words. I will never know if the average person...

There's an itch somewhere on my body. Today it is a stiff knot in between my shoulder blades, on the right side. I experience a delicious pain, like that of wiggling a loose tooth with the tongue, every time I reach around and press my fingers into those muscles behind me. At other times, this itch...

I first learned of Gilad Atzmon through his music, hearing him play at the Jamboree in Barcelona. I have since managed to get to another concert - this time in London - and have his CDs on my iPoD.

Time to put the year to bed.  Tuck it in and say, "Nightie Night," sing a lullaby.  I just turned in the final grades for my students, went Xmas shopping, had a dinner party with my very talented musician friends, song rocking this little Merriewood house, closing on the midnight hour...
