Ten Things I'm Enjoying about Austin
in no particular order...
**Reading my favorite novel about emotionally tortured musicians (An Equal Music, by Vikram Seth)
**Hearing live music when I got off the plane at the airport
**Reading Maurice Sendakâ€™s â€œPierreâ€? over and over and over and over to Reid
**Seeing Meredithâ€™s big smiles and triumphs as she navigates her new world, walking
**Being chatted up by Nathan, the checker-dude at the Market
**Being truly away from e-mail, guilt-free
**The 40th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper â€“ it seems appropriate that this would happen while Iâ€™m in Austin. The album came out just as I finished my freshman year in college, 40 years ago.
**Chicken molÃ© enchiladas at Curraâ€™s
**Finding new CDs by Conspirare and Chanticleer
**Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla on top of Central Market chocolate crispies
and many more.....
