Cloudy, Say it like Eeyore

Day 72

I am thankful for Mozart.  On bells.  I wish I could remember the name of the piece but it's our performance piece for our upcoming Spring Ring.  We've being ringing it since September.   We close every rehearsal with a little Mozart.  It's a peaceful way to go home.  AND, we started a piece by Arnold Sherman based on the melody, "How Can I Keep From Singing?"  It features "singing bells".  A vinyl coated "clave" sized cylinder of wood is run around the rim of the bell creating a continuous tone.  The sound is based on Chinese bowl singing (I think).  If you've ever rubbed a wet finger around the edge of a glass it's like that but with handbells.  Very cool. 

I did think it was going to be sunny today.  I am disappointed.   No rain but it's looked like this all day:

 A gray day does make the color of the blossoms stand out.  More purple leaf plum blossoms:


  1. Some of the teachers were also disappointed by the rain today too, but I wasn't! I love these rainy days, with sun and showers playing tag with each other! Sweet, fresh air! Beautiful!

  2. No sun, no showers, clouds, clouds, clouds. Better today, more in today's post. :*D
