I have been crazy busy, running up and down Southern California for various workshops (pastel and spiritual) which have been wonderful but I will have to get into all that later! Time to call yellow cab and pick up my little Honda, who has been in recovery after all the running around!
It feels like spring today so ... I thought I'd share a little springtime. :)

It is not known if the poems were written by Vivaldi himself, or whether he commissioned them from a poet. However, the words, which are written in a the flowery Italian of the 1700′s, are lovely, and describe the music very well. Here is the sonnet for La Primavera with an anonymous translation into English:"
This part is so gorgeous, it makes me want to weep! Such beauty!!
Happy Spring Everyone!!!
Blessings and light!!
