Counting Down to the big day

One gift already received - the ANWAR vote went the right way.

Sunday, I attended a concert in Tillamook, OR, my daughter second soprano on the left.

Wonderful music and the dynamics of watching orchestra and chior get ready was most interesting and resulted in this little ditty:

The Orchestra Tunes Its Instruments

The sounds of forest, field and garden
fill the blue sanctuary –

dragonflies and damsel
bubble bees and sand fleas
wee green frogs and a great toad
ducklings lost among herons

a hippo out of Africa

crickets escaped from a hearth
geese and starlings’ song
bright as bells and chimes

and a very human trumpet

*

Ben arrives this afternoon - the house full of a 4 year old.

Smiles.
