Another old building

The building looks as if it was a church.  It is in the blocks where many churches have been for a long time.

Landscaping by the Cabo restaurant.  Besides being in a historic church (the black door may have been a entrance to the church), this Main St. restaurant is by a bus stop for several of the buses.  Fascinating place.

More football

In addition to the football game action, there is a lot going on at a game.  My attention goes to the photographers working the sidelines during the half-time as well as the game.

Saturday afternoon football

T'was a chilly afternoon for football.  Va. Tech fans didn't leave the game early; they stayed and hoped.  Alas, the Hokies lost.

Master Chorale

Concert by the community singing group.  Its top-level talent seems to attract even more talented singers every concert.  And the audience fills the hall--in this case, the church.

Today it is seeming as if it is winter.  Most the leaves have fallen from the trees.

Police station

From the library across the street to the police station.  The last time I was inside the police station was to get help to install a child seat in my car to pick up a friend at the airport...It was not a major effort for the police officer to check the seat.  It was good.

Fralin Hall for Music talk

Fralin Hall Auditorium was the venue for a talk about music therapy.  Seemed a marvelous chance for me to realize the convergence of science and art their importance in health.  Quite a combination.
