Today’s Briefing: Quick Links

“It strikes me that Thoreau’s writing is like his own landscape–a vast expanse of weeds, brush, thickets, and just occasionally a singing bird with a soft note hidden in some unexceptionable underbrush. Thoreau, in other words, is as chaotic as the real world of nature and just as full of trivia, with here and there some remarkable observational nugget.”

–From “The Lost Notebooks” of Loren Eiseley, in “Collected Essays on Evolution, Nature and the Cosmos, vol. 1,” Library of America.

The project will return dozens of acres of ditches and spoil piles to functional wetland that will yield food for fish and wildlife, filter and clean water, and provide other benefits.
Nov. 7: Stetson Jazz Ensemble, Patrick Hennessey, director. The Stetson Jazz Ensemble presents a program as varied as the whims of fall, beginning with the rhythmic fascinations of George Gershwin, an “Invitation” for “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” to the stage, and wrapping up the evening with a classic powerhouse from the genius of Leonard Bernstein, “Prelude, Fugue and Riffs.” Selections from the Count Basie Orchestra, Rob McConnell and his Boss Brass, the Stan Kenton Orchestra, Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band and the Toshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabackin Big Band will also highlight the performance.
7:30 p.m. Athens Theatre, DeLand. 124 N. Florida Ave., DeLand. 386-822-8950. Admission: $10 adults, $5 youth and students and free for ages 12 and under. Tickets are available at the door or at www.stetson.edu/music-tickets.
