Observatory of the Quotidian
For a photo-blogger, I sure do deviate from my stated goal of posting new photos.  Howbeit, my friend the ever-musical Melody shared a wonderful piece with me and I wanted to share it with you all.  I've listened to several other pieces by the composer and so far would recommend him.

And - just so this isn't completely off-topic - the music is accompanied by some beautiful floral photographs.  Perhaps this will be motivation enough to finally take my camera out into the garden!


Well, it's been 11 days since I last posted, and that's because life has been a whirlwind.  Among other things, I partitioned my hard drive and upgraded my Linux Ubuntu operating system manually, and this afternoon played Feste Romane by Ottorino Respighi and Les Preludes by Franz Lizst with my orchestra (I play violin).  Since I love Respighi, I thought I would take this opportunity to embed a YouTube video for my very first time.  : )  I encourage you to listen to the whole piece!

Right now, I'm sitting at my desk, watching the snow pile up and retagging photos.  (I lost my old photo manager when I upgraded my system and with it all my metadata.)  I try to make a point of posting recent photos here to keep myself accountable for taking them, but as I'm watching the snow hit one foot and looking at photos from summer 2009, I haven't the least inclination to post more pictures of snow.  I want to put up pictures of flowers.  Accordingly, it is flowers you get. : )
Climbing roses
...and some cherries
Purple iris
Asiatic lily
And, for good measure, one toad.
After all (think I, with a look out the window) spring really is coming!
