yesterday...dropped my art off at the Pence Gallery (will show that later)...then we took off for San Francisco, as we had tickets to hear Dick Holdstock and Allen McCloud sing
on the tall ship: The Balcutha at Hyde Street Pier. Dick is English and Allen is Scottish and their two voices blend beautifully together to tell stories of sailors gone to sea long ago.
We sat in the belly of the ship across from the port holes looking out onto the bright lights of the City.
Listened to the songs as the audience sang the choruses. DH once sang as back up to Dick and Allen's first CD years ago. He had gone to Dick's home earlier in the week for a group sing. And thus found out about this nights program. We were glad we went... They all sang and I drew in the semi dark.
(My pages look yellow due to the lighting in my house where I took them, but maybe the yellow aged look just goes along with the mood here too by coincidence.)
Now I'm off to an art class! Who said 70 is old???
