HELEN JANE LONG Live at St James’s London is a beautiful concert (BLE Records, United Kingdom). The music was composed and arranged by Helen Jane Long, and performed by Helen Jane Long and The London Players in 2015. I had not listened for a time, so the music is both familiar and new.
The view outside is green. I think of Listen To The Green, Luci Shaw’s first poetry book, which was published in 1971 (Harold Shaw Publishers; Wheaton, Illinois). And I mentioned her new book, Angels Everywhere: Poems (2022, Paraclete Press), in a recent post. Her books by my chair: 1971, 2022, and many books over the years. Wonderful creative work. Please see Luci Shaw The Official Website if you would like more information. She also is a photographer, and there is a Photo Gallery.
Books and art are good friends through all the changes life can bring.
Karl and I began here in December 2009, and I am grateful for blogs. One post, one day at a time. I also have bought books by authors I know from our blogs.
Colors and years: the daylily plants fill a garden. Lots of green now, and their flowers here are orange in July. Daffodils and primroses bloom now. Many wildflowers have found a home here – and bees, butterflies, birds.
