Vivaldi The Four Seasons Venice


Escape the Ordinary, May 1, 2007

Antonio Vivaldi's The 4 Seasons are familiar concertos that are brought to life as sights are captured in the city of Venice. The pace of the music seems perfect for strolling at home on your treadmill as you dissolve into the atmosphere of Venice and wander across bridges, take a ride in a gondola and watch a storm approaching as the sky darkens. The seasons are beautifully portrayed with plenty of attention given to breathtaking scenic views of the water and city from all angles. Fisherman work on their boats and a violin maker sands pieces of wood to perfection. City life, parades, people meeting along the street, artists and craftsman at work gives this a realistic and wistful mood. At one point you are wandering along walkways with tourists and the next you are experiencing the romance of the season. Each vision brings unique moods as the city moves from a bustling tourist attraction to a cold silent winter.

Travel Address Book


So Adorable, July 25, 2006

If you have been looking for a tiny address book to carry with you in your purse or pocket, this is an excellent choice. The adorable size does not mean you will have no place to write. In fact, there are only two entries per page, allowing for name, address, phone and e-mail. The picture on the front can be changed and you can insert a picture of your favorite person, pet or nature scene. The durable cover and little pen makes this a practical and useful address book that may also be given as a gift. A ribbon bookmark is included so you can keep the location of your most frequently dialed phone numbers highly accessible. Of course you could put them in speed dial, but what fun would that be? Another use for this book is to fill it with addresses so when you are on vacation, you can easily send out postcards.
