Live your life and forget your age.





The mornings lighter, the skies brighter. Spring is definitely on the way. Perfect weather to be outside in the garden from dawn til dusk. When Sophie gets tired of digging she just clambers onto the old garden table and has a restorative nap beside her brother. Gentle snoring allowed.

Of course the real sign that spring is on the way is the arrival of the pan pipe men at the market. Today there are two of them stamping their feet, waving their feathers and bending their arms in some approximation of an Andean dance. Sophie is mightily impressed. Her enthusiasm may have more to do with the swaying feathers than the music or the funky chicken dance.

And here is something uplifting with a hint of Jimi Hendrix to it to get the pulse racing on a Monday morning :

  5. Love the audience reaction at the end of the vid. LOL. Just the thing to warm up yet another cold, rainy, potentially icy day when it's supposed to be spring.

  6. I had a chance to see 2Cellos last fall when they were in DC and a friend of mine had an extra ticket--I should have gone with her. You are right, they certainly do a lot to get the pulse racing and we need that to get the snow-shoveling done today!

  7. Well, we just got more snow this weekend and had a bracing -4 degrees this morning, accompanied by a -21 wind chill. I have given up completely on Spring and Summer.


    Oh, I love 2 Cellos! Those guys are awesome!
