Hey Greg,

Like the use of the Wordle cloud. We plan to go see Eric Alexander, probably Sat.

Hope to see you,

Hey Greg,
Some weeks ago, my wife and I were able to see 2 incredible shows combined. Korean born ceramic artist Jiyeon Yim's show "Emotive Moments: Trace & Gesture" was a moving display of abstract ceramic vessels and selected ink drawings. Providing a musical backdrop was Nagel-Heyer Jazz recording artist "Paradigm Shift". Paradigm Shift's music seemed to focus our attention on an audio/visual tapestry woven by the two art forms. I would recommend that if you are fortunate enough to catch this show, definitely check it out. You'll be glad that you did!
