Haiku For You

Music wild and free...

lifting the Spirit to joy...

Good food for the soul!

Dreams are like the clouds...

floating above in the sky...

Dreams are the angels!

Trees bow in homage...

with icy breath, winter speaks...

You have heard the wind!

From nothing comes life...

God's eternal mystery ...

The promise of Spring!

Almost everyone on the planet who loves music knows the story of the famous Von Trapp family of "Sound of Music" fame.  Below are some photos from Elisabeth Von Trapp's 2007 visit and concert at our Mountain Folk homeplace near West Reading, Pennsylvania.

Elisabeth Von Trapp is the daughter of Werner Von Trapp and the granddaughter of Captain and Maria Von Trapp.  Werner Von Trapp helped to found The Community School of Music and the Arts in town of Reading, Pennsylvania, near our Mountain Folk homeplace fifty years ago and Elisabeth's visit and concert was part of the fiftieth anniversary celebration. 

Mountain Folk's East Side Dave served as the concert's MC and also performed by singing and playing guitar with Elisabeth on two of the concert's songs.
