This is a woman beyond words - smart, accomplished, kind, did I say smart?, perceptive, funny, strong - amazing! ❤️
This is the second mashup for Dan (my mushroom loving friend) from the American String Quartet, this time from the last movement!
My friend Karen is truly spectacular. Business savvy, animal intuition, music lover, and one of the most centered and content people I've ever met.
This comes from the beautiful Siegfried Idyll that Wagner wrote and had performed for his wife on Christmas morning.
Cristina has been my TaeKwonDo teacher for many years. Above that she is an artist, a sculptor to be precise, an author, a scholar and an all around mensch.
She's also a huge RING fan, and loves the Brunhilde music from Walkure and Gotterdammerung!
Per la sua compleanno una lista di donne forte!
the pizzicato movement from Ravel's string quartet in F is so subtle and courageous. Listen how it morphs right into Happy Birthday!
Caterina and I used to carpool to work. Inevitably, one of us would be later than the appointed time, and we would text "9:45-ISH" to let the other know. After a while we dispensed with the time altogether, and we'd just text "ISH!"
