Spring Chronicles, Part 3

Spring Chronicles, Part 3

Lumping together days three and four today: Day 3: Derbyshire Another day, another practice, another breakfast, another trip to Ashbourne. This time, however, our final destination was to be a bus and taxi ride away–the Chatsworth estate. There is a reason that Robert Zemeckis decided to put the ever-original Forrest Gump at a bus stop. … Continue reading

Spring Chronicles, Part 2

Day 2: Derbyshire One of the most interesting things about traveling is finding a place to practice horn. Each new destination holds a quest for the perfect spot, or at least a spot that won’t encroach on the ears of too many other innocent people trying to enjoy their holiday. However, my days in Derbyshire … Continue reading

Easter Peeps

Easter Peeps

I know I haven’t even gotten to Day 2 of my Spring Chronicles yet, but it’s Easter, so I’m taking a side step today. Actually, it’s still about traveling, but I’m jumping ahead nine days. Traveling was really good for me. It kind of “reset” my system in a way, so that when I returned … Continue reading

That Moment

That Moment

Last week, while in London, I did many cool things. I saw Les Miz, as already mentioned, and I saw the Tower of London, and the crowned jewels (which literally will take your breath away–I don’t even like jewelry and when I saw the Imperial State Crown, I was so stunned by how beautiful it … Continue reading

Les Miz

Les Miz

Last night, I was able to cross something off my bucket list. It was actually the first thing on my bucket list (whether that is bad prioritizing or not is up another matter). I saw Les Miserables in London. I love Les Miz. Ever since I was little, I’ve been exposed to and loved the … Continue reading

Spring Time

Spring Time

Spring is on its way, and I am very glad. The nice weather has meant that spending time outside has been more pleasant, and I’m just waiting for the day I can put my big black wool coat into my suitcase for good. I’ve been lucky to have a few very nice days lately. Last … Continue reading

Smart Cars That Do Dumb Things

Somehow, ten days have flown by, and I realize that it’s about time I work on another post. When comtemplating what I was going to write about, I had many options, all of which I’m sure I’ll get to at some point. But as this past week has been governed by a particular attention to … Continue reading

A Picture Post

Knowing that I’ll never catch up on recording everything I’m doing, and knowing that what people want is pictures, this is going to be a picture post, with brief captions. Saturday, February 11th: London After my horn lesson with Pip, I wanted to stay the day in London. So I brought along a packed lunch, … Continue reading
