Day 521

1. Slicing into an avocado that was at the perfect stage of ripeness.

2. Attending my local community’s annual fine arts show.  Every year I am impressed by all of the talent living among us!  Here is a small sample of various works on display:

3. Getting to observe a Taiko drumming performance as part of the fine arts show.  I have always wanted to attend one of these performances; to get to watch a local group share their talent in an intimate, up-close setting was terrific!  Taiko drumming is about more than just using sticks to beat on an instrument – it is a full-body, multi-faceted art form.  Here are some images that hopefully illustrate that:

And here’s a brief video I found of the group performing a few years ago:

Very cool.
