Southern Culture

I love the holidays. I love music and I love the great friends I am so lucky to have. That being said I had a lovely day Saturday.

Stacey and I joined some friends for lunch and a concert by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. The Orchestra was joined by the ASO Gospel Chorus. It was a wonderful show. The chorus was made up of singers from local choirs. It was obvious that a lot of work had gone into this concert and that the chorus loved what they were doing. That love for their art and the skill of the ASO, together, resulted in beautiful music. I am very happy we were invited to join our friends, it was a great day. I plan on doing it again next year.

Events that bring us altogether are what life is all about for me. It’s not the event, it’s the friends gathered. It’s not always a happy event, sometime we come together to mourn. A friend we have lost or someone who is suffering, is a time when we all need our friends around. Most are happy times and like I said it doesn’t matter why, lets just get together.
