Reflections and meditations on music and singing, birds in my life, books and literature, reading, art and art history, history and humanity, words and writing, and things that catch my eye or cause me to wonder.

“Who Keeps a Record of the Fairer Sunsets”?
Sunset over the Meadows, January 21, 2013
“There are meteorologists, but who keeps a record of the fairer sunsets? While men are recording the direction of the wind, they neglect to record the beauty of the sunset or the rainbow.”
From the Journal of Henry David Thoreau, June 28, 1852.
