The Frenetic Peripatetic

We were invited to view the Saturday, September 9th performance of Odysseo by Cavalia with complimentary media tickets. What follows is our review of the show, which took place under the white big top tent near Opryland Hotel during the show’s stay in Nashville, Tennessee.

Let's just say the Eclipse in Nashville, and Taylor's latest single gave me new perspective in this battle with clinical depression. Talking heads are limitless, but when God … Continue reading A Total Eclipse
