I recall in detail a soul hugging memory of performing Bach Brandenburg #4 beneath the pines in Maine by a silver lake that seemed to shimmer in rhythm to the music. Now whenever I hear the 4th even the scent and breeze of that day and the indescribable feeling of unity with all the players returns.
I find memories like these are an instant mood changer as easy as hearing the intro.

Another memory was when I was small and climbing the trail over one last verdant bushy dune that would soon reveal the ocean in all its glory as the smell and sound of the ocean was at its peak of anticipation.

I recall a very hot day in 1963, when in the evening I squeezed in to see Screaming Lord Sutch & the Savages - this line up!

We went to a concert at St David's cathedral in Pembrokeshire in Wales in May 1984 on a gorgeous evening. My mum stayed at the guest house to babysit for our two (she was more of a Bing Crosby fan anyway). A small chamber group played all six Brandenburgs and it was wonderful.

My in laws always called Bing 'Bingo'
Brandenburg #6 features the cello but it is still my least favorite gem of the Brandenburgs.

In the late Fifties I went camping in a farmer's field in Devon with the Girl Guides, six of us to each bell tent. During the night, a rather over-friendly sheep walked in through the open flap and lay down on my sleeping bag, with his head on my chest. I cuddled him/her for the rest of the night. In the morning he thanked me by weeing copiously all over the groundsheet!

Many, many summers ago my friend Pete and I were bumming around Colorado, doing some rock climbing and hiking and looking for fun. One night we were camped by a lake, I think it was Arapahoe Bay, and we heard some beautiful sounds drifting across the water so we hopped in a canoe with a couple of other campers and took a nerve-racking paddle across the lake in the over-crowded boat and as we drew near we beheld a bunch of fellow freaks sitting around a huge fire singing "Ripple" with some lovely female voices taking the high parts. We strummed guitars and sang all night and it went on for two more days until we drifted away. A few years later I had a daughter with an Oregon girl I met there who's become a lifelong friend.
