Verdi Skies

Safari River winding through the park


Tall trees with scattered clouds in the sky


This is the Safari River in the heart of Africa at the San Diego Safari Park, looking up to a few scattered clouds. Oh, what a lovely day at the park. Joining others to share photos for SkyWatch Friday

My husband and I had another wonderful outing together at our local local preservation park. It's a huge place to spend the day walking about, seeing all the endangered species and wildlife plants.


Verdi for Kids


I'm reading a book this week by  Helen Bauer that's for the young musician, ages 9 and up. I'm very impressed with the book and can't wait to post my review.

Helen Bauer is the author of Young People’s Guide to Classical Music. A classically trained musician and former piano, music theory, and reading teacher, she worked with Leonard Bernstein on his nationally televised Young People’s Concerts and performed at Carnegie Hall. Helen has also written another book, Beethoven for Kids: His Life and Music with 21 Activities (For Kids series)


I'm joining in with so many others for The Friday 56. Here's my quote from the paperback book:

"The Russian tzar, Alexander II, realized that serfs, forced to fight for a cause that did not matter to them, were no match for free men fighting for something that they believed in."
