Happy New Year! I am not entirely sure how it came to be 2012. (I mean, I understand how numbers work and counting and so forth, but how is it 2012?!? 2012 is the future. How is it already the future??) But here we are. In the future. Weird. I hope this year is awesome, super wonderful and great for everyone. I hope everyone gets a job (that they don’t hate) and is healthy and content. Or better, ecstatically happy.
The number 3 makes me happy. Disregarding that 3 strikes means your out and that 3 legged dogs have a hard time walking, 3 is a great number. So, continuing with my Copland Collection, named after the wonderful American composer Aaron Copland, I would like to introduce Trios: Three distinct voices in lovely harmony. I’m a sucker for chamber music.
Moss Aquamarine, Smoky Quartz, Brown Tourmaline (sorry for the less than ideal photo. It sold before I could take a good one. A great problem to have):

Smoky Quartz Trio with a brilliant solo by Yellow Onyx:
And the original trio, Green Turquoise, Copper and Silver:
