Last day of Long Beach

It was a little quieter yesterday. The hustle and bustle had gone and I was able to spend good quality time looking at the quilts. It seemed that almost half of the quilts were labeled 'No photographs' I'm not going to comment, but I did hear a lot of rumbling from viewers. The quilts I…

The wind down

  Goodness. I began this blog 3 times last night and got distracted with other work, then I succumbed to sheer exhaustion. It was if I had a hand on my shoulder holding me back. Its the wind down after a long tour. Looking back, its been an inspirational tour. I've loved every minute of…

Score of Baude Cordier's chanson "Belle, bonne, sage," from The Chantilly Manuscript, Musée Condé 564. The manuscript is one of the classic examples of ars subtilior, which requires red notes, or "coloration" to indicate changes in note lengths from their normally written values. This chanson, a dedicatory piece on the love of a lady and…

Our lives are fragile.

Signature of Helen Keller (1880-1968) (Photo credit: Wikipedia) I looked at my Ipad at 2.00 am yesterday morning and awoke to hear of the terrible tragedy in Colorado. We've been shown a fragile side of life. Lives are forever changed and its a reminder that we never know when our lives will end. The absurdity…
