My little town is driving me nuts right now. I need to get on a plane and fly away.

I found the music of Mendelssohn quite consoling yesterday.  Downloaded several recordings by Andreas Pfaul (link to page of free MP3s of piano music byMendelssohn). I alternated between playing Mendelssohn’s Songs without Words and listening to Pfaul’s recordings.

In the meantime, here’s links.

I am fascinated to watch the continuing evolution of Jimmy Carter. Also the changing way he is viewed by pundits.  I think his post-presidency has been a constructive in many ways.  I especially like the fact that he gets down and dirty with Habitat for Humanity and works alongside other people.
