Caroline Shaw (263)

A family member gifted me two tickets to a concert for my birthday. It was the opening concert of the September Me festival in my home town. The Regazze string quartet performed new music written by Caroline Shaw. It was amazing.

Shaw wasn’t able to travel to The Netherlands for this performance, but the opening of the night was a recording of her singing a song written for this festival. Her voice is so clear. I’ve fallen in love with it. I can’t point you to recordings of what I heard last night. They don’t exist yet. To get an idea of her work, you can watch this performance of the song And So. Perhaps you’ll fall in love too.

Sunday in Harderbos

We went walking through Harderbos, a small sized forest on the east side of Flevoland. Natuurmonumenten, a Dutch association for nature preservation (although all our nature is highly cultivated nature), shares lots of routes for hiking and cycling and we chose this one to spend this lovely warm day. It was about 5,5km long and Daughter walked all of it by her self (it only took the promise of an ice cream at home to get her through the last 1,5km). Another milestone to celebrate.
