This afternoon I visited Salt Lake City, Utah.
First a walk around Liberty Park.
Then a walk around the LDS temple square.
I noticed a crowd dressed up for an evening out. They were all heading into the same building.
Since I’m in the habit of wearing a button-down shirt and good shoes now, I slipped into the crowd and fit right in.
It turned out to be a choral performance.
I read my book during the tedious bits and enjoyed the brilliant bits.
“No photos during the performance”, they said.
“Is this part of the performance?”, I asked the elderly usher during a droning introductory bit.
“Make it quick.”
My favorite part was the organ solo.
I love pipe organs. And this one is gargantuan.
I don’t think it was really pushed to its glorious capacity by the piece, but it still got a standing ovation.
I snuck out a bit early to head south in search of my next truck stop.
