A year ago this afternoon, Monica Smith snuggled into a lounge chair on the M/S Dreamward's upper deck, shut her eyes and daydreamed about the week that had just passed: a wonderful cruise to Bermuda with her husband, Washington Bullets assistant coach Derek Smith, and their two children. As she woke, she spotted Derek nearby, conducting a basketball clinic.4 Her thought of that moment still brings a smile."As I looked at him," Monica said, "I said, 'My, I love him so much.' "But within hours, her family would be shattered.

Musical duets are usually described in conversational terms, as if it were all simply a matter of point and counterpoint, parry and thrust. But when Dick Hyman gets together with fellow jazz pianist Derek Smith (as they will tomorrow for the Baltimore Chamber Jazz Society), the music they make together is rarely competitive or contentious. Instead, he says, it's more like two minds trying to express a single thought."We use great care, and listen to each other very carefully," he says, over the phone from New York.

Matcha Time Cafe, according to Watanabe-Smith, fills a void in the local tea market and in her life -- having missed the shop's signature green matcha brew since moving to the United States some 20 years ago. Brewed from tea leaves ground into a fine powder, matcha is a somewhat thick green tea touted for its antioxidant qualities. To offset its bitterness, it is traditionally served with a confection, such as red-bean-filled mochi.
