Thank you, Vic, for the lovely tribute to your magnolia tree and DH Thoreau. (Yes, his birth name was David Henry. After college, he switched it to Henry David.)

My tastes will seem old-fashioned to the young'uns here, but I prefer classical, especially chamber music, jazz of the MJQ-Brubeck-Bill Evans ilk, lady vocalists in the Ella and Sarah school, and Goodman of the quartet and quintet era. Also Fats Waller, Erroll Gardner, Nat King Cole, Marian McPartland and many other great pianists.

Thanks to Pandora and other "radio" apps, I do hear lots of good contemporary tunes, and I'm always struck at the infinite variety of music created, even though some say the writers use only four chords. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pidokakU4I

As a professional, you, are your one and only asset. Without integrity you are worthless, but with it, you are priceless.

Discovered some new stuff recently:
My Darkest Days (especially "Set It On Fire" and their cover of "Come Undone" from the first album)
Sean Christopher, Transcendence (especially track 6, "For Andromeda" -- it's like a mix of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon with Battlestar Galactica and Mass Effect thrown in)
Kongos, Lunatic
Willie Nelson, cover of "The Scientist"

Mixed with cherished favorites:
Anything by Alison Krauss
Daft Punk Tron Legacy soundtrack
Technotronic
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Hero
Mass Effect
Halo
