Monday evening I attended a memorial cocktail reception for a good friend. It was a celebration of his life and a look back at all the joy his music had brought - Held at an elegant performance venue at a Colony Hotel, Palm Beach. I knew many people there, having a shared connection to the venue, his music and other piano/jazz artist. I provided many photographs taken at events where Norm had performed and set up an extra-large tablet, playing a video.
As the evening wound down, I concluded that this was an event that Norm would have enjoyed and would have been the center of attention playing from the wonderful "American Song Book".
The more I get out attending “life” events the more I am faced with what with the age old female quandary, ”what to wear?” This was always an easy decision when I was attending conventions, support group events or even work. But this evening not so. I knew black would be suitable or proper in the circumstances but opted for more color, but still dressy. It was a spring like evening in Palm Beach so I dressed accordingly. I think what I chose worked for the evening and group.
