Fort Reno

Three beautiful things from my past week:

1. I decide not to let a little rain keep me from going to the Fort Reno punk show. While I missed the first band, I arrived in time to catch a string sextet playing Brahms and a tribute band (for a Peruvian proto-punk group) featuring the septuagenarian bassist and singer of the original group performing the songs he made famous back in the mid-’60s.

2. I’m sitting in a lawn chair, when a short, fluffy puppy starts tearing around the park, eventually barreling straight toward me, putting the breaks on at the last minute, and then standing on its rear legs to tag my knees with its front paws. Later in the week, I am at a different park, sitting at a picnic table, when a small, elderly dog hops up on the bench and then climbs into my lap.

3. I buy a paper box full of tomatoes from a farmer at the market. Rudi has made (and frozen) sauce and soup so far and we still have about a third of the tomatoes left to finish.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world lately?
