I'll go first. This list is nowhere complete- but it is a good start to get your creative juices going.
Books- I cannot weigh which is of more important to my happiness- my garden or my library. But I can say what I am reading now. Betrothed by S.Y. Agnon. It is the first story in a set of the Nobel Prize Winner Library that sits on a shelf in the study.
Butterflies- It was finally cool for enough days in a row that they weren't floating about the garden for three days. But they are back.
Baseball. When I was a little girl, JoAnn Turovsky's father would play catch with us. Watch the Dodgers on TV. Explain the greatness of Sandy Koufax. Because of my friend's father's influence- what I wanted most as a child was a mitt. My parent's said we couldn't afford one.
JoAnn Turovsky grew up to be the principal harpist with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, the Los Angeles Opera Orchestra, the Long Beach and Pasadena Symphonies, and is a member of the contemporary music ensemble XTET. She has been the professor of harp at the USC Thornton School for the past 25 years. She is also on the faculty of the Colburn School of Performing Arts.
