Corner View: Music

Music is something that is so important to me. It has the ability to manipulate my emotions in a way that nothing else can. It can make me screamingly happy, unfortunately melancholy, ridiculously silly and incredibly spiritual.

Having said that, this post has taken a much different turn than I originally anticipated.

I work in downtown Salt Lake City. There is a square in town where local artists put on concerts during the lunch hour in the summer. I can hear the concerts from where I work and I love to take some time to sit in the sun and listen.
Also, Pierre and I went to dinner at a lovely little place called La Caille a couple nights ago. We always sit on the patio and eat dessert and talk about all the important things that couples talk about. We don't go very often, and when we do, it is always my favorite. Since we sit on the patio, there is usually live music. This last time there was a fantastic saxophone player. I loved every minute. There are also peacocks that have run of the patio, which I love.
And this time there was a baby peacock that I absolutely fell in love with. If they would have let me, I think I would have taken her home.
I always get bananas foster with my live music. It is my absolute favorite.

Thank you for visiting my corner. Go take a listen around the world from Jane's sidebar on Spain Daily.

So rich with poetry and the un-expected, it's fun when a post becomes something un-planned:)
