8th Annual Comfort Musicale!

It’s that time of year again! Our annual  musicale, which brings together musicians from all over the state, is Monday July 24, 7 PM.

Tickets can be purchased at High’s Cafe & Store during normal business hours. We are unable to process a credit card transaction. Checks made payable to The Comfort Table or cash will be accepted for payment.  Generous underwriting allows for 100% of the ticket price to go to the table and pantry. Following the concert, the good feelings continue with wine and nosh at High’s. The after party is a great time to greet and thank the various performers. This year, a string group from The Austin Symphony will join 22 professional singers,  a pianist, guitarist, oboist, and bassist along with our word maestro Douglas Skrief from International Falls, Minnesota.

Many audience members have come year after year for the gathering. In the intimate venue of Spinelli’s (former Gaddis Methodist Church), you literally are surrounded in sound. Allow the music and the poetry to transport you to a “better place”.  If you have never been, YOU ARE MISSING SOMETHING TRULY SPECIAL.

Get your tickets today. The event is always sold out. Only 175 seats are available.

Hiking in the Santa Fe National Forest

ROAD TRIP! Off we went with Jerry for a hike in the Santa Fe National Forest. Located halfway up the road to the ski basin is a great hiking trail. Borrego Trail is the perfect walk in the woods. I’ve never seen Jerry happier. Other happy dogs along the way offered testimony to the lovely scenery. At times, an awesome quietness surrounded you and at other times nature spoke. There is something about walking in the woods that realigns your psyche. Once we descended the mountain, we were greeted by a refreshing stream – a perfect location for a picnic. Next time. We watered Jerry and headed back. The trail makes a triangle. However, we missed a turn and continued up a different path that would have taken us wildly off course. Luckily, three mountain cyclists stopped and reoriented us. Thank God for them. Another watering for Jerry at the stream and we headed toward the car. This was a great outing and I look forward to sharing it with family and friends. Doug, bring your hiking boots.

 

 

Dawn in the garden

The garden project is coming along. Abundant sunshine, watering, pruning and music have encouraged our veggies and flowers to grow! Lettuces and herbs were shared the other evening with friends along with a celebratory toast to Mother Earth. A local artisan created the sacred spiral which encourages the garden to grow from the inside out. A strong core results in abundant growth. I hope you have enjoyed watching the progression of the garden. From construction of raised beds to dressing of the greens, this effort has been a delight.
