"Sultry Moon" Charles Burchfield. Image from and link to LSDEX Contemporary Art website. A site which I found while searching in desperation for either an image of Gloria Cheng playing on Tuesday or - which strategy paid off - googling "sultry moon" Life is good
Last night the (half or so) moon poked through a sweltering late night haze and the Arroyo Seco as we left downtown. In my mind I supposed said moon had been listening along with us as Gloria Cheng played a Piano Spheres concert at Zipper Hall and then, being just as exhilarated as we were, came out in its half-dressed state to applaud.
