for Susan



as promised some time ago, a picture for Susan, of her beautiful silk scarf, which was the prize for a draw on her blog. lucky me, i won it. i wore it to a harp gig i did some weeks ago, and promised a picture then, but the light there was very poor, and it was a very hectic evening, so the photo shoot never materialized. a visiting friend took this shot for Su, in my teaching studio at home. once again, thanks Su, for the beautiful wearable art. it makes the morning walk to work through the snow a celebration of all the lovely things in life. i've also been promising a sound bite of the harp, which isn't forgotten.... my digital recorder isn't agreeing with my Mac about how to bring this to fruition.

A picture well worth the wait. I'm sure the little mermaids are delighted to listen to the beautiful music you make in your life. Peace and love to you always.

Hi Gfid!

Those Clarks are "Artisan Clarks". I fear not many stores carry that line ... I checked in Vancouver after I bought them. The lady in Mission, B.C. tries to bring in different than the normal shoe lines. Some of her shoe lines are demmed expensive but these aren't too bad ... so take heart. Here is a website I found displaying them:

Your scarf looks mawvelous dawling! Wish I could hear you play myself.

TTFN ...

ergh! i'll try again

su - it's hard to tell when i'm playing, but i'm sure the mermaids sing harmony and dance along. thanks again; it's excruciatin' lovely.

cicero - found the shoes 'funky star', they call them. thanks for the link. the scarf is thick, heavy silk satin, wraps around and around and around.... and feels every bit as good as it looks. i'm working on the sound byte issues.... in my spare time (she laughs hysterically)

Harp - !!! never knew you did that stuff! Excellent. But now it is time to come up with some lyrics. See my last post.

Beautiful, wonderful harp! Most excellent...so looking forward to hearing your gifts! (Um, the music, that is...can't really hear a scarf too well...)

zee - my students have named her Melody, and she sounds as lovely as she looks. just did a gig a few weeks ago for a fundraiser for the local library. i have garageband on my mac, and one of my kids gave me the finale songwriter program for xmas. so i see composing in my future.... there's been a song percolating for a while.... we'll talk. i could get so much done if i could just trim the extraneous time guzzlers off my schedule (things like working 8 hours a day, laundry, cooking, cleaning....)

lee - hey, nice to hear from you! yes, she really is a gorgeous thing. i'm very much in love with her. my fiddle's a bit jealous, but i they're like children. it's possible to love them all and not neglect anyone. when i have some time to learn the sound programs i have, and pick up a microphone for recording, i'll post some music.
