Momentous Weekend

As a follow-up to my “too busy to post” post, thought I’d explain some of the goings on that I couldn’t discuss prior to the events. In that previous post I mentioned that Furman Commencement and the Greenville Chorale Concert were scheduled for the same time. What I didn’t mention was that I was supposed … Continue reading Momentous Weekend

Music for the Soul

Today the Greenville Chorale Chamber Ensemble presents its winter concert at Furman’s Daniel Chapel. The program is entitled “Music for the Soul”, and the music was chosen to be both soothing and uplifting. We start the concert with Gabriel Faure’s Requiem as the major work on the piece. I’ve performed this piece several times, and … Continue reading Music for the Soul

Blue ghost fireflies only glow during mating season, and are only found in isolated areas in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  Both the males … Continue reading In Search of Blue Ghosts

Sustainability, Greenability, and Misunderstandings

Three seemingly unrelated tales of environmental misunderstanding… When I was playing disc golf at Furman Sunday afternoon I noticed something unusual. There were weeds everywhere and the place looked badly overgrown. This was most noticeable around several of the park benches and picnic tables around the lake. Furman usually keeps immaculate grounds. Not a blade … Continue reading Sustainability, Greenability, and Misunderstandings
