Be as wise as a serpent and as tender as a dove.

Fridays at Five – SFJAZZ

JAZZ !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tomorrow, I’m going to Friday’s at Five, a digital jazz concert. I’ll stay right here in my room.

I love to go to jazz concerts with my son. Before the lights are turned down low, we order a glass of wine and settle down for the show. I listen for a bit then I start sketching – eye to hand to paper. It’s dark during the concert so it’s always a surprise to see how the sketches turned out. My subject matter won’t be live performers. I’m looking forward to seeing what I’ll produce!

Check out. sfjazz.org. New videos will be posted on YouTube every Tuesday and there is an interesting selection of playlists to listen to on Spotify.

 

Hey Thom!

Hey Thom!  Hey Thom!  I’m listening.  I hear you where did I go? Nathan, you know, it’s all about writing but there’s always something else to do like texting Binny or  having a drink I can’t remember how to put a black frame around a drawing so the drawing doesn’t look all gray and fade into the background of the post. I’m listening. Hey Thom! Hey Thom ! did you know that Van Morrison wrote Listen to the Lion in San Francisco? But you knew that. And then there are my friends saying I haven’t heard from you are you all right? What’s that all about? oh I know, I haven’t been posting.

just write any story

On March 16, 2012 I entered a post titled Van Morrison’s “Listen to the Lion” A Tattoo. Today I tried to copy it and add that post to this one, but then the old post overwrote this post and so on. After hours of by guess and by golly I finally figured out how to add a link. Bottom line is just leave it, finish this post and get back into the habit of blogging again! https://carlasaunders.com/2012/03/16/listen-to-the-lion-a-tattoo/
