Christmas Past

A most enjoyable Christmas—as it was meant to be. Sitting around the fire with treasured members of immediate family—sipping French Champagne and exchanging gifts.

Although it’s embarrassing to admit this, our kids finally dragged their parents into the twenty-first century with a DVD player. (I’m a notoriously slow adapter). We broke in the machine most fittingly by viewing “Concert For George”—the wonderfully moving tribute to George Harrison performed at the Royal Albert Hall last November on the first anniversary of George’s untimely death.

A multitude of great musicians, including Ringo and Paul, performing a couple of hours of all-George Harrison compositions—preceded by an Indian segment with music written for the occasion by Ravi Shankar. What could be better?
