    Concerts Across Time Some would say “they don’t make music like they use to”. What is the era of music are they referring to?

One concert I would have loved to have attended was in Paris, France in 1994 at Élysée Montmartre (Fitzairn).

    The Crow in the Woods The Crow in the Woods by John Updike is unlike any other story I have read before. The author does an odd but wonderful job in describing in detail the thoughts and surroundings of an average married man. This story meets course goal number seven as it enhances the students’ understanding of the value of holistic thinking in making informed judgments and in applying values as they become increasingly conscious of what is at stake if we fail to understand the relationship…
