Audience of One

      Very early this morning I was  awakened by a loud cracking noise. The wind was really blowing, and I figured it might have been a tree limb hitting something. That proved to be the case; a limb from the maple tree had crashed onto the deck. That was the start of another bitterly cold day with the temperature stuck at eleven degrees. The meteorologists are blaming it on the "polar vortex." Doesn't that sound cool? (No pun intended) Anyway, every state except Hawaii has been experiencing freezing temperature, so we're all shivering together.    

     I have been taking flute lessons for a number of years, and I do try to practice every day. When I play, I'm  usually perched on a high stool. This evening I glanced down as I was playing and noticed that I had an audience. Pulling out my iPhone, I snapped this photo. Emma . . . a music lover? Well, if you look a bit closer, you'll notice one of her new toys at the ready right beside her. She was patiently waiting for me to finish practicing. Usually she curls up for a nap when I take out my flute, but from time to time I do have an audience of one.
