Where in the World is Mara!
North Carolina in the summer is sometimes a perfectly lovely spot, with just enough rain and warm sun to make everything flourish! It's also sometimes a bit on the humid side. Mostly it vacillates from one to the other, so we never get bored... At the moment, magnolias are blooming, crepe myrtles are just beginning to flower, and my cottage garden of phlox, zinnias, salvia, bee balm, gardenias, and roses is looking beautiful. Now if we can avoid too much heat and too many direct hits by hurricanes, we'll be very happy campers.
I am very grateful for your support -- thank you for the tip jar donations, for downloading tracks and albums, and for your email notes. I continue to upload a few more recordings on the Music page every so often, and have some videos on the Links and Videos page. If you enjoy these, and would like to see more, let me know! I'm happy to add to the collection.
Stay healthy and safe!
