I put this on the TFB College eNews, but I thought I'd put it here too. What would you do and why?

Okay, so you’re standing in the middle of a 50-yard long, door-less, tiled hallway with a boogie board leashed to your right ankle. Fifteen people, holding fire hoses attached to 1-¾ inch connections stand in the north doorway and turn on the water. You have a split second to decide what to do before just over one-hundred gallons of water per second knock you off your feet. What do you do? Why?

At Music at Noon today, I heard Nick Ariondo on accordion and Gary Gould on pennywhistle (he’s a woodwind player who took up Irish music as a favor for a wedding (also, I could find no website for him… bummer). They played various airs, jigs, and hornpipes, and may I say it was haunting, beautiful, and rich. I almost didn’t go. Glad I did. I haven’t heard music this beautiful and simple in a very long time. My eyes actually watered, the music was so beautiful. It was a good day.
