Hilton Head Island: last sunset over Skull Creek (for a while)

I am sipping a martini and listening to Max Richter’s recomposition of Vivaldi’s FOUR SEASONS while watching my last sunset over Skull Creek for a while.  Carol drives us to Charlotte tomorrow and we fly to Chicago on Sunday, where I will stay for about a month.  I will not be just wearing shorts and a t-shirt next week.  

I think I have written here before how admirable I find Max Richter’s recomposition.  How audacious to rewrite what was at one time and may still be the most recorded classical composition, and it turned out well.  

I will miss glancing up and seeing water.

Thanks, I like Vivaldi. I will check in on Max's composition.
