good memories in western massachusetts

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 4:02 pm

Your Editor slipped into Western Massachusetts yesterday — not

to chastise some shady lawyers, but to find a shady spot at Tanglewood

for an afternoon concert by the Boston Symphony, featuring Pinchas



I can’t remember ever spending a more enjoyable time outside.  Perfect (and

bugfree) summer weather; the company of two of my very best friends and

their extended family; people-watching fun; beautiful music across the field;

intervals in peaceful repose, or reading The Innocent, Harlan Coben’s newest

thriller; and painting-perfect cloud puffs slowly sailing by.  Then, we ended the

evening celebrating three August birthdays with some sinful chocolate cake. 

A performance that will be hard to beat — even by Carolyn Hall.

in their chairs

old friends reunited






L’Apres-midi d’un faune

the brass section

empties their horns

starless night

she knows he is

one of her sons
