My wife and I are heading to the wilds of rural New England this weekend. In the meantime, there is a scheduled post in the queue.
I never know what I'll get in the way of Internet access when I head up there, so I may be around from time to time to answer comments and email -- or I may be incommunicado until late Sunday.
In keeping with my usual practice of focusing on good things each Friday, I'll share a couple of musical pieces.
The first piece was brought to my attention by Jason, who blogs at Thoughts of an Egoist. This is Mozart's Sonata No. 18, as performed by Hu Ching-Yun.
The second, for a slight change of pace, is a solo performance of "Such a Night" by Dr. John that I'd never heard.
Interestingly, the man who posted this second video to YouTube turned out to be none other than the late David Mills, who co-wrote the HBO miniseries Treme, which my wife, who is from New Orleans, really likes.
Today: Made a correction.
