Welcome 2012!

We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential. ~Ellen Goodman

David's musical gift will continue to bless lives

Winter Solstice

Have you ever pulled over to the side of the road
just to take a photo because there was a great background?
Never mind that it is 10 degrees outside
and you are not dressed for the occasion.
That's us.

And Now For Something Completely Different

For your consideration
A new, yet old style of Christmas music.
Years ago I wouldn't have cared for this type of music.
However, it has grown on me
And now it feels like an old favorite sweater.
Warm, cozy and comfortable.

photo by Jed Wells

Having just wrapped up my fall vocal recital with my students
I got a kick out of THIS POST today from my friends
Hue and Hum.
Caitlin is an artist and Robbie is lead guitarist for Fictionist.Link

Both of them are guitar teachers.
They are talented, creative, artsy, and very fun people.
Their blog is a favorite!
