Last week was spring break around here. Ha! Which meant snow, of course, and more Busy for Dan (there was a conference to prepare for), and some much-needed time with friends who were also on break. The week started with making paste-paint papers (which we did last year at about this time!), using the big well-lit studio on campus. Fancy!
Mid-week Dan and I got out on a date to see Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn at Stuart's Opera House. Oh wow. We've been going to see Bela for 20 years, starting in a highschool auditorium in Wisconsin, so we knew to expect something amazing from him, but I'd never heard of Abigail, and she was this incredibly dynamic and powerful performer who played off of his straight-man act well, and blew the audience away by singing more than a couple songs in Chinese (she talks about her connections to China on this TED Talk. She may be my new hero). It was wonderful.

I smell you, Spring. I do.
