Peter Sprague on Guitar

Take six minutes from your busy, hectic lives and listen to the wonderful musical magic that Peter creates in the following video. This link was just sent to me by a friend. The recording was made when "Peter was around 20." Enjoy.

Then, treat yourself to a Christmas Eve Concert (free) at L’Auberge Hotel in Del Mar (just north of San Diego, California) from 1-4 pm (December 24th). A yearly event with Peter Sprague, "it’s a soulful, fun, free, gathering of local community, friends, family with outrageous music since Peter invites about 20 different professional, hot musicians to sit in."

On the occasion of the one hundredth post

I’m thinking of fall leaves.
Fall Leaf on Tree (orange)It’s December—normally our trees are bare.
But these leaves cling stubbornly on.

with red, yellow, orange, and brown.
