Andrew Sullivan posts a daily "view from your window" pic sent to him by a reader, a feature I, along with many others, enjoy. So here's a pic "from my practice room." This is the deck of the house of quasi-relatives in Cold Spring, New York, overlooking the Hudson River. Yes, it was a wonderful place to practice!
If you find yourself playing cello in a beautiful place, send it to me and I'll be happy to post it.
