It dumped rain and then stopped so we could see and hear the incomparable Mavis Staples outside at the zoo. She's 76, y'all, and a short dynamic bundle. She covered a Talking Heads song (!) among other splendors. The sun went down on cue and we headed for home after shaking ourselves out to some very fine music.

And Patty Griffin too.

Now that's a concert to sit in the rain for.

Oh my goodness -- I'm jealous. I now the Patty Griffin song is about MLK, but I swear I think of my Sophie every time I listen to it. I recently saw her at this beautiful church here in Los Angeles -- she's just fantastic.
