Here I am, checking in from Cape Girardeau, MO. I played a gig here last night, in a beautiful garden that was lit up with orbs, twinkly little lights, etc. The temperature was perfect, about 77, not too many allergens in the air (or maybe just the ones my body is used to now), and there was waterfall, a babbling brook, & night birds calling. Although I mostly played a mix of jazz, new age, & classic rock (it was a cocktail party), as the crowd thinned I lapsed into some classical music, including ‘Clare de Lune’, which was perfect in that already ambient scene. Written for piano, but it is perfect on Harp.
So now it’s the Morning After, and I’m enjoying tea in my hotel room before the 2 hour drive back to St. Louis. I really have enjoyed this Black Gold Bi luo, but then again, I enjoy pretty much everything I get from Yunnan Sourcing, so no surprise there! I’m still not ordering any new teas, probably not until Fall, at least. But I am working on a favorites/re-order list, and this one will probably make the cut!
