Long weekend at Marco Island Florida was good for my soul…rest, sunshine, knitting…what more do you need? Flights down were right on schedule; flights back were delayed due to snow in the north but when we landed in Charlotte, NC at 5p the temperature was 66 F – not bad at this time of year. Flowers were beautiful …
beach was a little breezy and cool … Two trips to Knitting with Nancy in Naples so of course I now have two more projects but NO MORE SOCKS! Had an energetic 3 mile walk round trip to the local library so I have not completely forsaken my exercise. A highlight of the time was a delicious Italian dinner at Capriccio of Naples followed by a Merce Cunningham Dance Company performance at the Philharmonic Center for the Arts I attended with my sister in law and two of her friends.The dance was challenging but I've gained a greater appreciation after reading about Cunningham's philosophy of the independence of music and dance. I'm also familiar with the work of John Cage,his long time music director who died in 1992, so I knew I was in for an unusual was...I'ved continued to put together the squares for the Bookcrossing afghan today ….here’s the latest along with my lazy helper, Virginia the cat!
