More Jazz and Friends Come to Visit
Wednesday we enjoyed a visit from our dear friend, Fr. Terry Ryan, who was on his way up to the Snowmass Monastery for the summer. He is a wonderful Paulist priest who married us, baptized two of our daughters, and encouraged us to try Centering Prayer. We are thankful for all three! If you ever have a chance to attend one of his retreats or missions you will not be disappointed.
Of course, in the evening we went down to Two Rivers Park and listened to this week's installment of The Summer of Jazz. Steve Turre and the Sanctified Shells entertained us with fabulous music which included playing shells! Hated to see it end. Check out his music by clicking on the previous link.
When we arrived home at 10PM we had several missed calls from one of "my CU students." She and a friend were on their way to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival but she had inadvertently told me to expect them on Thursday evening. Thank heavens I checked my phone because apparently there were no hotel rooms available that night. What a fun time catching up with everything that's been happening in her life as a busy 21-year-old. She'll be graduating from CU next year and then it's the real world for her. We hope she continues to come for visits, though, even though she has a thing with popcorn!
