I enjoy being back home in China because there is a lot of family there and great super food.

I also feel calmed by the beaches in Singapore.

I would like to visit Hawaii and Paris sometime in my life.

Bangkok. Kuala Lumpur. Singapore, especially. A beautiful, quiet place in France where I go often and dream about occasionally. Paris; in particular the best shower I ever had there.

Hey, I've been there. It's in the Cortez National Forest (as I remember) in the mountains. Did some survey work there (claims staking) many, many moons ago for about a month. Nice little town. Don't recall the grilled cheese.

a super, secret spot on top of the continental divide, at around 9,500 feet of elevation. gorgeous alpine lake, waterfall pouring into it surrounded by masses of monkey flowers and bluebells. mountain goats knocking rocks down into the lake all day. a dreamy meadow reaching out into the forest, with masses of wild gentians, paintbrush, and lupine all in bloom. elk bugling in the meadows beyond, clanging their racks against each other. shooting stars falling on my face all night long in the crisp, cool air.

soon to be a major tourist destination when they finish putting in the continental divide scenic trail right through it this summer. i'll never go there again. mad mad :t:

Ok. The Balcony or Family Circle of the Metropolican Opera House. Anywhere in Carnegie Hall. The backyard, especially in spring. The dining room table first thing in the morning with a fresh pot of coffee waiting. On the sofa bed with Preston's arm around me (my bed's only a twin so we use the sofa bed, to make a long story short laugh ).

One of my absolutely favorite places in the whole world: my piano bench.

A spring, early-summer meadow.

A Maine road side abloom with beach roses whose scent demand an abandonment of convention and rules. "LIVE". "SCREW THE ESTABLISHMENT" they say. I obey.

My desk at home.

As I said, in the arms of my lovey.

Several places that don't even physically exist anymore.

Hamilton, and the beaches of the south shore of Bermuda.

Banff/Lake Louise area of Alberta.

Florence, Italy.

Nueva Esperanza, Honduras.

I'm in your neighborhood every weekday right now apple...but if you blink, you might miss me. I am tearing back and forth between there and everywhere else.

Justme, we're doing Working. It is not my favorite piece but it's well suited to this group. Several of these kids are private students of mine. They're great kids. I don't know if I really need to do this gig again after this year, it really is kind of a scheduling nightmare. I think I'll get this batch graduated and retire. One of the reasons this time of year is so nuts for me is that it's contest and scholarship audition time for my voice students. They all want extra lessons and I play some of the auditions as well as the musical. I usually end up judging a couple of things also and doing master classes or clinics...it's just an important time for the musicians. I'm particularly proud of a couple of my senior girls. They have both gotten very nice scholarship offers from good schools. Makes me very happy and tickled for them. Hard hard workers. Both came to me with good instruments but significant vocal problems. They worked hard, did what I said and now they sing like angels. Healthy, easy, wonderful singing. I love that. Kids are cool. I wish I had more *energy*.

Ain't that the truth!!! I love kids. Especially teenagers. I'm not familiar with the piece you're working on but am glad to hear you're enjoying it. It's nice to know there's someone else out there experiencing the same happiness. BTW your pic *is* beautiful.

JF, your pictures are lovely. I especially like this one [Linked Image]

Y'all have already seen my photos of Dawn Beach on St. Maarten. That's definitely in the top five, along with these spots:

Ornamental Gardens, Summerland, BC - atop a small mountain, with views of Okanagan Lake through the many gorgeous gardens. It's one of the most peaceful, beautiful special places I've ever been.

And in my own back yard, Virginia's Skyline Drive through the Blue Ridge Mountains is almost heaven.

Justme, we're doing Working.
My daughter did that musical last year - At the time I'd never heard of it, but I enjoyed it anyway. My daughter was Dede (waitress). She has a loud singing voice and somewhat drowned Delores out in the duet.

What's funny is that many of the kids are now known by their character's job.

And I agree Plays - great photos.

Hi ianihp,

I like Delores' song "It's an Art". We have six really good lady's voices and three really fine men. There are several parts in Working that play well enough when sung in a 'character' voice, so we should be all right. It's not a great show, but it's ok. It's amazing to me how many truly mediocre musicals there are in this world.

I do think Working is a good theatrical piece. This show gives a lot of kids an opportunity to have a nice chunk of singing and acting to do. That's nice...I have double cast shows in the past just to be able to involve more students. This year I didn't have to do that and that is a nice thing.

Been thinking about Bernard's answer to this question, and it's really closer to the truth for me than my own answer. For me, it's the company more than the location...I do *very much* enjoy beautiful scenery and climate, but they don't hold much charm without the right personnel.
