Last week while in Atlanta, where I had been kindly asked to deliver a speaking engagement, I had a three and a half hour breakfast with my 82 year old Aunt Marie.

Can you believe we’re over a quarter of the way through 2017 already?! Jeez Louise, where does the time go? When we are young we’re told that time will go by faster as we get older. I can’t imagine time going by any faster than it does now. Yikes – I must be ancient. To read more click here

It’s starting to really feel like Spring here in Colorado. The days are pretty much in the 60’s and 70’s consistently now.

While I love Yes, Rush, Genesis, Foo Fighters, Thelonious Monk, Leo Sayer, The Bay City Rollers, Moog Cookbook, Pat Metheny, The Soggy Bottom Boys, and lots of other musicians and I’m blessed to attend a lot of concerts, there’s always been a special place in my heart for opera and I’ve been a raving opera fan for decades.

It appears that it’s that time of year again when my little friends fly South for the Winter. I haven’t had any of my friends visit any of my feeders on our deck or the feeder attached to one of my office windows in about three days.

I hope you’re enjoying your Summer! It’s gorgeous here at 7500′ in Colorado. The hummingbirds are whirring around, the deer are in our yard early in the morning, the sunsets are gorgeous, and life is beautiful. I heard that it snowed up north in Wyoming and Montana over the weekend – yikes. Even for up there, that’s pretty rare for this time of year. I hope it’s beautiful where you are and that you’re enjoying the slowed down Summer pace. To read more click here
