After a wonderful week last week with a dear friend, former duet partner and fellow lover of all things choral who flew across the country to visit, I’m reinfected with the wonderful anticipation that hits all choir folks each August for a new choir season and new music. This very fun piece, sung by the wonderful Edinburgh-based group Pitchcraft, further spreads “the bug.”
I covet a mantle. This is such a beautiful alternative.
I LOVE trying new dessert recipes but when it comes to choosing my own birthday dessert, it’s always vanilla sponge cake, berries and cream. Perfection.
Dream table setting. Favourite flowers, favourite colour palate, friends and al fresco. Perfect.
One of my very favourite of pieces, by Stephen Paulus and Michael Dennis Browne. For all who have ever felt lost.
The Road Home
Tell me, where is the road I can call my own,
That I left, that I lost, so long ago?
All these years I have wandered, oh, when will I know
There’s a way, there’s a road that will lead me home?
After wind, after rain, when the dark is done.
As I wake from a dream in the gold of day,
Through the air there’s a calling from far away,
There’s a voice I can hear that will lead me home.
“Rise up, follow me, come away,” is the call,
“With the love in your heart as the only song;
There is no such beauty as where you belong:
Rise up, follow me, I will lead you home.”
Cake decorated with lotus blossoms and a hand painted chinoiserie vase. Edible work of art, I’d say.
