Spring! ... and a tale of two performances

Wow, what an early spring. Saw lightning bugs yesterday on the Spring Equinox... and that's early.

Was in Bloomington, IN for the 2nd time in 2 yrs. The last time I was there, I played a high pressure solo guitar and lute concert at Indiana University's Auer Concert Hall for the IU International Guitar Festival.

This past weekend, I was there for a different type of performance: sprinting.

At the Harry Gladstein Indoor Track facility, I won a National Championship in my age group as a 400m sprinter in the USA Masters Indoor Track and Field Championships. It was unexpected, but it sure makes this spring very sweet.

The new pool heater is in and tomorrow I'll be swimming.
