It is just as entertaining to ‘watch’ music as it is to listen to it. The beauty and perfection of the instruments, the light and mood of the moment, the passion of the musician. It all comes together to enhance the experience. The immediate access to music and videos through our home and mobile devices is incredible. But it will never surpass the tangible experience of ‘watching’ music in person.

A town carved by history in the heart of Mexico. A place where colonial architecture meets the natural brightness of bougambilias spilling over the thick limestone walls. Walking on the cobbled-stoned streets, breathing the scent of style, art and wood-burning kitchens, has an enchanting effect in your senses. The warmth of colors matches the welcoming smiles of its people. You have to be there to let its unique vibrancy sink in. The next 4 series of photos are a humble sample of the colors of San Miguel.

We have been delighted this Spring with a very intense Azalea bloom. I guess after a hard 2017 for nature it is coming back strong. Really strong. Heavy pollen “mist” from all the trees around us, but oh, what a treat with the intense colors of the Azalea shrubs. We are on the last stretch of the short, several-week blooming cycle. Enjoy its intense colors and how it paints the front porches of many Texas homes.
