  1. It looks like a white redbud but whiter so my very inconclusive answer is that it’s an “alba redbud” (obviously not the botanical name) or a white dogwood as they are both blooming right now. as to where it is ,,,well, next to the creek, duh! I don’t know the names of the valleys, fields, meadows and glens but it looks as if the picture were taken on the others side of the creek from the field that one walks through to begin the ascent to the old white shack on the ridge.

    On another note, as of today, Manning is 1/3 of the way through his deployment.

  2. FYI – Here’s some background info I sent to Kate Skinner about the piano piece accompanying the video

    “the video clip (which I hope is now working on the OurRumpus site) has a piano piece played by Phillip Sear composed by a prodigy jazz cornet player named Bix Beiderbecke (1903-1931)from Davenport Iowa who you may already know all about – but his piano music is relatively under-appreciated. He did about 4 of them, this one called Flashes – amazingly advanced for the 1920’s and clearly influenced by Satie and Debussy. His best known piano piece is In a Mist – if you video google Ralph Sutton there’s a great video clip of him doing another piece called In the Dark. He (Beiderbecke) died of alcoholism at age 28 in a flat in Sunnyside New York right across the street from where Eliza Halcomb was staying a couple of years ago during her toxicology fellowship. He was also thrown out of the high school Liza attended outside Chicago, Lake Forest-Ferry Hall”
