|Sister's of the Road|
I feel better this morning. I am planning a short, brisk walk in the trail this morning before church. It is current t my 35° here in Portland. Overcast, but no precipitation. Yesterday's homeless meal concert lifted my spirits.. we played at Sisters of the Road Cafe in Old Town. Not for the faint of heart. Old Town Portland is pretty rough and very real. We were mostly background music as the people came in to get warm and have a meal. But some of them came and chatted. Had some wonderful conversations. The workers were so sweet and kind. They brought . US all coffee. The . Food looked really good. They asked if we would come back on a regular basis. I think maybe I'll stay for lunch next time! :)
Only drawback is they don't have a piano on the premises. Our soprano brought her keyboard. It was decent as far as keyboards go. But it didn't have enough volume. I think we will have to look for an amp.
We have one more homeless concert next weekend before winter term starts. I am really enjoying this musical volunteering.
But now, I need to get vertical. Going to visit my dad today and help my mom prepare their house for his release. Possibly tomorrow if his blood pressure cooperates.
