I don’t know what’s different about today’s music. But it grabbed me by the lapels, shook me out of my slumber, and made me want to know who’s singing. Regina coeli in B flat, K.127, especially Movements 2-4, amazed me. The soprano was doing a lot of vocal gymnastics, which I don’t normally like in [...]

I love sitting here at Panera Bread, listening to Mozart and watching the two old guys who meet here every morning. Well, sometimes it’s two. Other times it’s three. They get so animated, talking, laughing, waving their hands. I don’t think I’ve ever seen them eat anything. They just drink coffee and kvetch, mostly about [...]

Today (Saturday, March 20, 2010) we awoke to see snow had blanketed the ground in a grotesque parody of a late-December morning. I don’t mind snow in December. Especially late December. But I do object to it in late March. But to whom do I object? My cat? My wife? The meteorologist on TV? God? [...]
