I Heart New York

After Baltimore it was on to NYC for a whirlwind day and a half in which we actually managed to see most of the oodles of folks we intended to see (and squeezed in a visit to the new MoMA*). It was exhilirating and exhausting and wonderfully distracting. It was just what we needed. Thank you, New York.

Now we're briefly back in Virginia, reunited with our little lasses (they've been loving the farm life), and tomorrow it's back to Texas. It's been good.

* Go. Go to the Contemporary exhibit. Go to the room with 40 speakers arranged in a circle with each speaker playing the voice of a different member of a chorus singing a beautiful work by a 15th century composer whose name I can't remember. Walk around among them. Get teary-eyed. Feel happy. Enjoy. It's worth the price of admission.

  1. Contacts in the choral nerdocracy have informed me that it's: Thomas Tallis - Spem in alium.

    Thanks, nerdocracy.
