Sharing thanks for Pink Patterned Poinsettias

Pink Patterned Poinsettia's, January 9, 2012

It was a beautiful January Day on Long Island. After taking my daughter to school I decided to take a drive and commune with nature at the Planting Fields Arboretum. They have a greenhouse that is open to the public that has a wide array of orchids and is still decorated with an amazing number and variety of poinsettias. It is so important to spend some time outside in the winter, and soak up that vitamin D especially on a nice day. Here are my thanks for today.

1) Thanks for the public park at the Planting Fields Arboretum, which is free this time of year. I enjoyed walking at the old Coe Estate and spending some time in the fabulous lush greenhouse.

2) Thanks for the quiet peaceful serenity that I experienced there today. There are few places on Long Island where you can just listen and hear the soothing sounds of nature.

3) Thanks for the great musicians in the South Shore Symphony. We had are first rehearsal for this new year. It was fun sight reading, Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony and Copland's Appalachian Spring. Love playing both of these challenging pieces.

4) Thanks for sharing a fun moment with my parents. A few weeks ago we saw a Shuffle concert at the new Madison Theater that my orchestra performs at. A NY Times reporter interviewed us. Had fun sharing the article where my mom was quoted!
