Keeping a Calendar Again!

For the past two years, it seems like all I have been doing is taking pictures of ducks and other visitors to Tasma Gardens.  I have enjoyed that activity and the ducks have gotten comfortable with me.  They fly in and land in the pond regardless of my presence.  I take that as a compliment!  They are not shy about making baby ducks when I am nearby either!!

A Music Clip from Clarksdale, Video by Susana Travieso

Here's another video clip from my USTREAM.TV archives.  This is a clip from a Clarksdale trip........which was filmed by Susana Travieso in 2007.  In this film, Adrian Kosky is workshopping a tune that later turned into an actually recorded recording....a live CD of sorts....called, "Blue Simmer."  Click here for info on that CD, recorded in Australia in 2008.

From USTREAM.TV's Adrian Kosky Jamming in Memphis

News from the Radio Springs Hotel

It was a lovely day to play in Lyonville yesterday!  I played a dulcimer at the Radio Springs Hotel with Adrian Kosky and Dr. Phil Mac.  Here's the newsletter that went with the gig:  Click here to read it.

I am happy to share a few of the recordings from my handy-dandy-digital-voice recorder!

Someone is Watching Me

And I'm enjoying the attention....even though I know it comes with hope of another hand-out!

I'm sitting on the veranda, listening to Adrian play his Magowan jocimer, and another cockatoo has just landed in Tasma Garden.  I can't see it at the moment, but I can hear that it is munching in time with Adrian's music.  Two Australian Wood Ducks are sleeping at the edge of the pond.  It all sounds good.  I'm thankful for these things.

Beautiful Birds in Daylesford, Victoria, Australia

I just like looking at these photogenic faces.  So I'm sharing some pictures of beautiful birds I have been seeing in Daylesford during the last few days.  I hope others enjoy looking at them, too!
