Things I liked this week:
1. More music! Dr. Jonathan Nichol is a saxophone professor at the University of Oklahoma, and I got to go to his faculty recital this weekend. It was great, he played a huge variety of different types of saxophone music, some by himself, some with piano accompaniment and some with another saxophonist (his father!). It was a fabulous concert, really exemplifying the variety of musical styles the saxophone can play. My favorite piece was the Denisov Saxophone Sonata, quite modern sounding and wonderful.
2. More flowering plants! My bromeliad is blooming again. It hasn't bloomed in a while, they only bloom once and then die, but usually bud off a pup before doing so, and this is about the fourth pup from my original planting. So pleased it's blooming again.
3. I like the murals at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. I've never gotten a chance to visit the museum proper, but this is the second time I've gotten to go to a gala dinner held there for work. This year I remembered to take pictures of the gorgeous murals. I call them murals, but I think they might be paintings, in any case they are HUGE and framed and gorgeous. You might be able to get a feel for the size by looking at the people for comparison. There are five sets each has three panels. I recognize 3 of them, but am not sure about the 5th.
Not sure where this one is.
Not sure about this one either, the pacific coast somewhere, I'm guessing Monterey area
The Grand Canyon
My friend Liz went with me this year, and we had a good time. I wore the same dress I made for this event last year.
4. Morning light through the stained glass! Our church has a bunch of lovely stained glass windows, and this past Sunday the light was hitting them just right and causing rainbows of light to bounce all around the nave.
5. The beautiful blue-blood-super moon. I meant to schedule viewing of this cool event, then promptly forgot. And then I got lucky to see just about the peak of the eclipse when I came out to walk my dogs early in the morning. I quickly rushed back inside to get my camera and tripod. So glad I did, in just a few minutes the sun had come up and viewing was done!
