Good Sunday to you! Our weather is finally reflecting the fact that it is spring in the PNW. Sun, warmth and blue skies. I couldn’t ask for more. Last night Mr G and I went to a concert featuring one of my favorite musicians. The venue was a bit shabby but the music was amazing. In concert Bruce has a way of making songs that are familiar brand new, adding different instruments and layers of sound. He has been introducing westerners to world music for years. I loved it.
The past few weeks have been crazy at school and we have two more weeks ’til we are finished. It is a time for excitement and reflection and a bit of sadness. There are students moving on who I will miss.
As for my reading, it has been chaotic but filled with wonder. I cannot recommend Among Others and Kamchatka highly enough and I just finished another great book. I hope to have a review up by mid-week. I am planning on jumping into the Gormenghast Read-Along over at Farm Lane Books and I’ve also decided to join the latest The Japanese Literature Challenge organized by Dolce Bellezza. Last year this challenge opened up an exciting new world for me and I’m thrilled to be part of it again.
I am off to the beach for another low-tide Sunday, the weather is supposed to be beautiful and I should see lots of slimy creatures and Great Blue Herons. Have a wonderful day and a wonderful week.
