Two of my Favorite Things in One Place

Last week, my friend Craig brought his solar-powered sound installation, Sun Boxes, to the Walnut Hill Park Rose Garden, which is one of my favorite places in my home town.

I had missed seeing the Sun Boxes last year when they were at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum outside of Boston, but I had the opportunity to see them earlier this year with Sister K in Brookfield, CT.  We loved them (Sister K said it was better than Tanglewood) and were really excited that Craig was able to bring them to New Britain.


It was a beautiful day, and, in the evening, there was a free yoga class. It was really peaceful and calming after a long day at work. Everyone had a great time.

The Sun Boxes are currently traveling through the state parks of the Green Mountain State (this coming weekend they are at Camp Plymouth State Park in Ludlow), and if you have a chance to go hear this piece, I highly recommend it.

It is difficult to explain what Sun-Boxes are; it is better to listen for yourself! (Personally, I like to listen to the Sun Boxes recordings that I have when I am having difficulty trying to sleep. They are so restful.)
