Brandi Carlile

A late night at the Varsity theater.
Andrea and I first heard her over a year ago when she was the warm up for Jamie Cullum.
Nathan and Heidi heard her as the warm up for Shawn Colvin.
Now she is selling out her own shows.
Energy, blues, country and rock all to come together as Brandi Carlile becomes one of my new favorites.
(Nathan gets the credit for the pics. He was there the night before.)

Road to Emmaus


On the road again... I always joke that I should have a shirt that just says "camp somewhere" on it. This week I am on the road, literally, to Camp Emmaus. The camp surrounds it's own little lake that makes a nice run. The wood ticks are thick though, so shaking off has become part of the training routine.

Red Wing Black Birds

6 PM – Dogs are being walked, runners out running --- and lapping me!

The air is fall of sounds of the Red wing black birds as they swoop among the cattails. It is a memorable Iowa country sound. I recall my parents pulling over along the cornfields, with windows down, motor off, admiring a red ring black bird sitting on a fence wire with it’s high twirl voice crossing over the fields and ditches.
