My Dear Boots

Thank you for sharing these insightful thoughts. So life enhancing. I am so very glad you are revelling in feeling well again.

Blogging and computer time have their slightly magical place, I think, and it's brilliant to spread the word about just about everything. But it is not living, and living is the thing,

Viva Mozart! I write to him. Something about the heart beat, I'm told.

PS Have we abandoned the boots? Do I have to call you ...Miss Laptop? ....now?

Techno glitches fixed, I can now comment again - thank you for this, I will see what I might be allowed to listen to on iPlayer!

Aah, Mozart! True genius! What is amazing to me is that his music is pretty much always recognisable as Mozart (Jnr) even if you've never heard it before.

Thanks for the links to the music. I've never seen Così Fan Tutti. Perhaps I should!

Isn't it a feast. I can't get R3 in my kitchen but was delighted to discover a whole morning of Mozart on Sunday, while in a hotel room on Skye, of all places. If only I could have got reception in my car on the way home!

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?
  • Judith Kerr, Observer Magazine, 22 November 2015
    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
