mirage of the city

This picture was taken by my friend Herb Burns through the airplane window when he was landing in Moscow. I love it. Salvador Dali is taking a brake!

This mirage I have pictured in the desert from the Pilot Mountain. You can see downtown Winston-Salem where I live :)

very tasty lavender piano

Yesterday we had a concert in Reynolda library. Here are some pictures from the event. After the concert all Nadia's students came up to the stage and sung 'Happy Birthday to you!' song and surprised Nadia with a... lavender piano! The piano was very tasty. We were eating one note at a time :)
