Musical pairing – “How To Tame Lions” by Washington

The Professor and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary last month; and while we don’t normally celebrate the usual ‘Hallmark greeting card’ days like Valentine’s day et al, we do plan something special for our anniversary. It’s not that we poo-poo celebrations, it’s just that we seem to celebrate each day we have with one another – taking the time to sit on the deck watching the birds at our feeders, listening to a piece of music or sipping coffee while watching a sunrise in complete silence – those are moments worth celebrating throughout each day, each month throughout the year.

Musical pairing – Watermelon Man by Mongo SantamarĂ­a

The first whack of my knife against the variegated green and the thick skin of a watermelon bursts open revealing pink-red flesh speckled with jet-black tear-dropped seeds. I’m reminded of the Little House on Ankeny Street where the scent of burning Kingsford briquettes permeate the neighborhood, screen doors smack shut, then screech open just as quickly as wire springs are yanked into action by small hands.
