I've had a few e-mails about the music that is now playing on the blog. The title is A Living Prayer and it is from the Alison Krauss CD called Lonely Runs Both Ways. I have long enjoyed Alison's music and even my husband (who did not know Bluegrass existed before we were married) likes to hear Alison Krauss and Union Station play good music. By clicking on the song title, you will be going to Amazon.com where short clips are provided of each song on this CD.
Did you love the old Victoria magazine? After you visit my blog, click over to Snilnsigh and join the comments about our beloved Victoria. I knew the magazine was doomed when Nancy Lendemeyer was replaced by another editor. I didn't care for her changes from the first issue in which she took over. She just didn't "get it". Slowly we saw the demise of Victoria but even then...the pictures were beautiful. Sigh...how I wish I had my old copies I had to get rid of for a move.
Lanier has once again written a beautiful post, this time about the love of good music. My daughter and I were chatting on the phone recently, talking about ways to teach children to love great art and music. I was sharing with her what I had just heard on the radio, the host was interviewing the head of a school for young musicians. He was asked that very question about music. He said "Vivaldi at the dinner table". Yes...Vivaldi's Four Seasons and homemade pizza...with candlelight. Does it get any better than that?
