Do you need some more music for your summer soundtrack to file under the "mellow evening" category? Check out James Vincent McMorrow! I was not familiar with him until July 3 when I heard him being interviewed on The Current. Fantastic stuff. Love it. I think it's in a very similar vein to Bon Iver.

A little background on the photos featured above.....

#1: I'm trying to broaden my awareness of Rochester fun spots; I especially love parks. A friend recently introduced me to a tiny park where I took this photo. If you're local, do you have any "hot spots" in Roch that you love to visit?

#2: I still love close-up nature shots. I just can't get enough of nature! It's so neat!

#3: Did you know that South Sudan has declared independence and is now its own country! There is a fairly large Sudanese population Rochester, and I got to watch as they sang their new country's anthem on Saturday!

#4: Have you listened to any Mates of State yet? My pal, Anna, apparently bought a few CDs today; I can't wait to listen!

#5: I love chips. Do you? What's your favorite topping?

This Week's Word, Quiet

P.S. - Have you sent me a "quiet" picture yet for Word of the Week?
I'd sure love it if you would.
It was SO beautiful to see all the "love" pictures last Friday!

  1. Emily, here in Chicago my family loves this stuff called "Seven Layer Dip". You can probably buy it at the grocery store, especially during the summer. It's a layer of refried beans, then it's got like, cheese, tomatoes, black olives, and, um, three other things. It's like eating a burrito on a chip! Love it!
