MY DAY: Rain & Rainbows

It’s 9:10 PM, and the sky’s still clinging fiercely to the daylight.  The evening’s glow is magnificent. 


A full day is nearly done, and what a day it’s been.  

Students in the morning, followed by a Carillon Park concert with the Carillon Park concert band teaming up with the US Navy Band.  How cool to see some of my students sharing the concert stage with with this military ensemble.

Teaching resumed, but with an earlier ending than the typical 10:00 PM ending time. 

After his lesson, senior saxophone student, and neighbor, Alex Loree, joined me for dinner at Elsa’s Mexican Restaurant.  A fantastic dinner conversation with a fine young man I met nine years ago when he was about five or six. 

The rains poured, prohibiting me from grabbing some items from the garden center.  By the time I reached home, a beautiful double rainbow commanded the eastern sky. The backyard looked ethereal, and lush. 


This was just one day of blessings. 

 I’m fortunate to know blessings like these every day.
