Good evening, Marine...((HUGS))...hope you are doing well.

Any bad weather lately? Just heard on the radio that we will have an ICE Advisory tomorrow, 9am to 10pm.

I can get to work, but getting home looks like it might be dicey.

The Seattle Chamber Music Society holds its Winter Festival over two weekends in January, and I went for the second weekend. On Thursday night they did the 6 Brandenburg Concertos of Bach. But it the Friday night event that drew me 3000 miles.

I’d been begging since 2002 for the Schubert G Major Quartet, which is the Mt. Everest of string quartets. It’s almost an hour long. The answer I got was always the same: “A group of pickup musicians doesn’t have the extra rehearsal time to put that one together.” In the end it was a professional quartet that presented it.

I had visited the Ehnes String Quartet in Macon in December, and it was this group that performed in Seattle. Jimmy Ehnes (first violin) is the new Artistic Director in Seattle, and he is going far beyond the traditional fare. Amy Moretti (second violin), who runs the music department at Mercer University in Macon, told me that it only took them three rehearsals to put it together. (That kind of musicianship scares me.) Richard O’Neill, half-Korean and half-Irish, the violist, had told me of the impossibility of programming this quartet for a festival, but there he was, playing it. Robert deMaine, cellist and good friend, is moving from Detroit to L.A. to take up first chair cello at the Los Angeles Philharmonic, which is a huge step up for him.

The quartet performed the Schubert as though the ink were still wet on the page and Schubert were a modern composer. The first movement had a good hard edge to it. Robert played the cello passage in the finale in an appropriately R-rated way. It’s really nasty,” he told me. It was a great performance and was worth the trip.

Everybody was happy to see me at the concerts, and I discovered that I had been missed. After the Schubert, several people thanked me for being so persistent in requesting that quartet, which had never been performed at the festival.

The traffic was the only thing that marred the trip. Where I live in Georgia, the nearest traffic lights are 20 miles south and 60 miles north. I had forgotten what I-5 was like. But it was good to see my old friends.

FREEDOM ISN’T FREE! _________________________________________________________________________________________

_________________________________________________________________________________________

It Is Purchased With The Blood Of Patriots! _________________________________________________________________________________________


“Freedom Isn’t Free”

By Cdr. Kelly Strong USCG (ret)

I watched the flag pass by one day,
It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Marine saluted it,
And then he stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform
So young, so tall, so proud,
With hair cut square and eyes alert
He’d stand out in any crowd.


Eternal Father, Strong to Save
(Click)


I thought how many men like him
Had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil
How many mothers’ tears?
How many pilots’ planes shot down?
How many died at sea
How many foxholes were soldiers’ graves?
No, freedom isn’t free.


Taps
(Click)


I heard the sound of Taps one night,
When everything was still,
I listened to the bugler play
And felt a sudden chill.
I wondered just how many times
That Taps had meant “Amen,”
When a flag had covered a coffin.
Of a brother or a friend.



I thought of all the children,
Of the mothers and the wives,
Of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives,
I thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the sea
Of unmarked graves in Arlington,
No, freedom isn’t free.


God Of Our Fathers

Our weather has been up and down crazy.

We had ice storms Sunday, several days of single digit temps prior to that, and then today it got up to about 61 deg F!

The temps are now falling and we are looking at snow off and on for the next three days.

Quite a rollercoaster ride!

They don’t make bitter chocolate in miniatures, but that’s what I like.
