I know I'm still in my honeymoon phase. I totally acknowledge that. I'm loving every day in Maine! We've had a lot of rain since we've been here, but we just came off a stretch of wonderful weather! The house closes on the 17th and we can finally move out of this hotel. Wendy, Jazz, Journey, and I are all done living in tight quarters. I'll be moving all of our stuff from storage into the house, and St. Alban's has graciously offered to pay for my organ and piano to be moved professionally. One of the parishioners owns a moving company, so that's really helpful!
Since I've been here, I've had the opportunity to take several trips to Boston. Some were business related, some were not. I'll start with the business related trips. I shadowed Richard Webster and Colin Lynch at Trinity Episcopal Church at Copley Square. Wow - what a music program! They are both top performers in their fields and it was wonderful to be with them. I sang in the choir and observed the way they ran rehearsals. I turned pages for Colin during one of their performances. I know I was more nervous than he was! Some pics are below.
We've been spending a lot of time at our friend Mark's house. Here are some photos. I learned how to do this thing called mowing. They have REAL GRASS here!
Wendy and I took a trip to Boston just to do some fun stuff. We walked most of the Liberty Trail in the downtown area.
We had a great time visiting our Arizona friend Diane Hartley! Hope to see more Arizona folks traveling to New England soon. I start at St. Alban's this Sunday. I will post more about that church later. Keeping busy!
