Halfway to an Apailatian Spring

It is not at all unreasonable to question my ability to give an unbiased account of an Odysseus Chamber Orchestra performance.  I am invested in the success of this group.  Throw in the fact that I went to high school with Amiti Perry and I wouldn't blame you for asking for a polygraph.  My obvious bias aside, the performance on April Fool's Day by the Odysseus Chamber Orchestra and Amiti Perry's company was simply wonderful.  (I was going to say it was no joke, but I thought I'd be serious for a second...don't worry, it won't last long.)

Global Tour at the Dallas Zoo

Let's take a quick tour of the Americas and Asia via the animals in the Dallas Zoo.

First up is the cougar.  Cougars are native to the Americas and can be found in a variety of habitats throughout both continents.  Cougars are typically solitary creatures, but the Dallas Zoo has a mother and daughter pair who seem to be quite content cohabiting.  These giant beauties are the largest cats that purr.

Coming This Week - Finally Some Beautiful Music

I got the photo releases, so I am thrilled to be able to share photographs and storied from the Odysseus Chamber Orchestra and Amiti Perry Company's Appalachian Spring ballet with you.  This week will be the first of two posts.

We're also going to take a tour of the globe, via the Dallas Zoo, in our second zoo post.  And a few laughs from Jon.  I think it'll be hard to top last week's chili cook-off, but we'll see what we can do.
