Melissa Koltes of Rebecca’s Reads posted a review this week of David’s and my bo0k, Ups & Downs.  Here’s an extract from what she had to day.

“I do not typically laugh out loud as I am reading. But this book made me LOL more times than I can count. … The authors do a fantastic job of giving a visual account of the uniqueness of the towns-people, the villages, the countries and the cultures. The beauty of the landscape, the difficulty of the journey and the individual experiences that each narrate is awe inspiring, incredibly amusing, and greatly entertaining.”

Last night, in spite of my well documented antipathy for all things Christmas, I went with some of my fellow-singers from the Rocky Mountain Chorale to a recital by the phenomenal choral group Kantorei in Denver.  The show was in St. John’s Cathedral, which is absolutely gorgeous and has amazing acoustics.

It was exclusively Christmas music (you have to understand, waxing lyrical about Jesus was never particularly big on my side of the synagogue), but once I got over that, I was mesmerized.

Then, when we were leaving, I commented to my friends that I always find vacating the venue after one of those performances DISCONCERTING.

Yes, they groaned too.

I’m off for a hike to North Table Mountain today with the Boulder Outdoor Group.  If I don’t post again tomorrow, you’ll know that my backside is frozen to a rock somewhere up there.  Don’t bother sending help.  It will probably be too late.
