Last night we drove out to Tanglewood and on that quiet sultry summer night picnicked on the manicured lawn, then enjoyed a concert in the shed. Tanglewood is like no other place, greener, cleaner, and that certain summer ingredient was there. It was the the stillness, the clarity, the company of old and new friends, and the gourmet picnic we packed that made the night perfect.
Garrison Keilor was the headliner, this the last stop on his summer tour for Prairie Home companion. We’ve made this trip and enjoyed this concert for the past two years, here we were again under the shed while the bright sun still shone out over those on the lawn.
Keilor began that trademark ditty, ‘It’s Saturday, the band is playin’, honey could we ask for more,’ and all was right with the world.
