Savannah, or, Allow me to indulge on a Monday morn!

Yes. I have been missing in action since late last week and all I can offer as an excuse is. . .Savannah must truly be one of America’s most historic, romantic and esthetically appealing (think architectural eye candy) city!  Oh and the weather—sunny—75-80 degrees in February!  Southern cuisine and low country seafood boils–gourmet, handmade hot pralines—more art galleries per capita than any other city— it does not get any better, Dear Readers.  Swooning and Fainting I did.

Though I have visited Savannah on many occasions, I never, ever bore with its appeal.  However, for the past two years, we have visited Savannah with a purpose:  Precious Child II, for the second year in a row, auditioned for and won a place in the prestigious All-State Chorus.  Chorale singers from all over the state gather in Savannah for a weekend of master classes conducted by this country’s most prolific chorale conductors and composers.  At the Savannah Civic Center,  the weekend culminates with a day of beautiful concerts performed by the various choirs.

Needless to say, Mr.Recovering Attorney and I are very proud of Precious Child II’s musical accomplishments.  Our singer and pianist is not yet in high school(she was just a mere 10 years old when she started touring!)  and she has already toured and performed in Los Angeles, Hawaii, Ireland, throughout the South and at important Atlanta venues (Atlanta’s Dogwood Festival-main stage, Spelman’s Sister’s Chapel, The Rialto, Atlanta’s Symphony Hall and Eddie’s Attic—the stage where  John Mayer, Justin Biber, Sugarland, Indigo Girls and others have gotten their start).  Oh, last year she was inducted into  The International Thespian Society. 

She plays the piano, compose her own music, sight-read, can sing chorale, jazz, roots and contemporary music beautifully and yet she does not want to be a performer!  Though she plans on attending the joint Juilliard-Columbia University program (always thinking big), she is going to study medicine and become an ob-gyn.  She has stated that music will always play an important role in her life (Mr. Recovering Attorney and I are thinking college scholarship, now).  We are certain that her interest in music will last throughout her high school years. College scholarship, please?    We are not greedy.  Does not have to be full ride scholarship.  Mr. Recovering Attorney and I will take a quick ride around the block scholarship. Ha!

I love this child!  She is her own person and I applaud her for knowing what she wants, not compromising and going for it.  I don’t see a need for “recovery” in this child’s future!  

Thank you Dear Readers for allowing me to indulge.  In return I will share with you pictures from Savannah.  Look for them tomorrow in “Off-Topic Tuesdays.”
