We are WAY, way, way excited about this Saturday's house concert. Walter Salas-Humara, known for his work in The Silos, as well as some amazing solo work and a number of other different projects (go ahead and click that link...his story and experiences are amazing) will be here. We hadn't planned to have any shows this summer but I got an email from Jonathan Rundman, who is touring with Walter, a few months ago and thought, "Well hell, I guess this is why we hadn't scheduled anything...we were waiting for this to pop up!"
The show is Saturday night....regular drill....potluck at 6:00, music to follow. I'm thinking I'll make a big batch of rataouille and maybe have some grilled sausages on the side. Bring something to share if you like....or just come enjoy. BYOB although I'll have some iced tea on hand. All donations go to the artists...$20 suggested but just bring what you can.
There are a lot of Silos fans out there....please let your friends know about this or just drag them along. I really want to have a good crowd for the guys. I so appreciate their generosity in playing for us....
from a few nights ago... I must say...I AM looking forward to having an accordion in the house....
And in other notes....I walked into the dining room last night only to find the two blondes putting Lego together by candlelight. You know, there are moments in life you just need to savor.
OH, and I got a belated birthday present too!
And my husband....I gotta say...I know it's not possible to love him more and yet, crazily enough, I seem to. We sat and watched the convention when I got home from work and when Bernie Sanders stood and spoke I looked over at Ernie and could see that tears were raining down his face. And all I could think was how much I love him. It was one of those moments that just sear into your memory. Later Owen curled up on the couch with us and strummed the guitar and Leo stood in the doorway and we all talked about the election and Bernie and Hillary. Another moment to tuck away.
Saturday will be music and company and food to savor too....we truly hope you can make it. Just yell if you have any questions or need directions. Oh, and click on over to Facebook to let me know if you're coming!
