University of Texas Symphony concert

Loved this concert by the UT Symphony on a recent night. They played Bernstein's "Age of Anxiety" which was really moving. An apt choice for this time in out history.

Me, reflecting

Here is a shot I took of myself in the elevator lobby the other day while I was waiting to go downstairs. We have been here almost ten years now.

Two Basie greats

Terrific concert at Parker the other night. Two of the stalwarts of the Basie Orchestra-- Doug Lawrence on tenor sax and Butch Miles on drums. Yes, indeed. That is Kris Kimura, one of the club's owners, on baritone sax.

Sweet potato hash at Eberly

Yes, this dish was delightful. Sweet potato hash with two over easy eggs. Very tasty for a brunch dish. And we had good conversation with friends to boot.

Flowers at The Four Seasons

We always love walking into the lobby at The Four Seasons and seeing what the artists who do their flowers have created.

Four hard-working people

We spotted four construction workers in the cold and rain on top of the new Zaza hotel, guiding concrete into forms the other afternoon. That's some serious stamina.

Rather well done!

We heard a stirring speech from Dan Rather at a charity event on a recent evening. It was well-received and many people were sobbing at the end of it.
