KRISTIN CHENOWETH.      This time of year, there is often a concern that someone who should come home will not be present.

Here is Kristin Chenoweth’s live performance of “Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again,” by Andrew Lloyd Weber, from the Phantom of the Opera.  

It’s from Kristin’s  concert album, 2014,  called  Coming Home. It was recorded at the Kristin Chenoweth Theater in her hometown of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

Micanopy #1  2018 series. The Garage Café. All photos are dated December. By Paul Goldfinger. Blogfinger.net

By Paul Goldfinger, MD.  Editor@Blogfinger.net

Micanopy, a historic town in central Florida, was founded in 1821 after the United States purchased Florida from Spain. It is the oldest inland town in the state.

A wealthy Moroccan immigrant named Moses Levy founded the town after purchasing a large tract of land from the Seminoles.  He brought in immigrants to start a new life and a variety of businesses, and the place was successful.

The settlement was practically destroyed during the Second Seminole War  (1830,)  but it survived.

Levy became a well connected businessman there, and his son eventually became the first Jewish U.S. Senator in American history.

We have visited this historic town  (on the US National Historic Registry) twice.  The census  population is about 800. There are old preserved buildings, art galleries, shops and restaurants.

My special  interest is in finding photographic subjects for my Micanopy project. Last year we had Micanopy series 2017.  This year we are working on 2018.

While we were there, a young couple, she, lovely in a white gown, were posing for a photographer who seemed to enjoy positioning them in front of a decrepit wall down a side street.  The visuals are nice, but the idea of it is confusing.

Anyhow, I snapped a few photos from a distance.  The groom spotted me and waved. I gave him a thumbs up. We will show that photo soon.
