As far as the music, my favorites during the 7 hours... so many... were the 9 minute excerpt of an over hour long composition by Hans Abrahamsen called Schnee, Canon 2B, and Steve Reich's finale called 2x5, and Jeffrey Brooks' After the TreeWatcher and Julia Wolf's Lick. WOW. What a great world we live in. Mass Moca's Bang on a Can summer festival.

After a brief sojourn in a rented place in the village I returned to the farm- only this time I started working in the loft of my dad's barn. It is a magical place, with skylights, high ceilings, and often really good music! I can't wait to get back there next week!

Medics, pies, plants and our take home loot! Kenny's Pie's in small samples made my eyes roll in a swoon.... the mango medics were a nice distraction. They answered questions about ailments and diagnosed individual fruit problems. Coming from a family of doctors I am used to hearing about disease, blah, blah, blah, while eating. I didn't let a little topic of tropical rot stop me from shopping!
Trees are each $35.

So much of it is about standing in the moment before a big change, and having the resourcefulness to keep a sense of humor, gather wits, talk out a few dreams, and be flexible with conclusions. The car hours actually were for me the richest time of all... we chatted about politics, religion, our history, family, changing health, movies, new passions, and more. When we arrived at the campuses we appreciated the best they had to offer and compared notes. I am struck by how insightful and strong my little boy is! And I am impressed by the schools, both public and private, that Florida has to offer.
