Night Music: Forever Young

Tomorrow is the 100th anniversary of Pete Seeger’s birthday.  I thought this would be a decent early celebration of how lucky we are to have had him in our midst.


Leonardo’s 500th!

May 2, 2019

 

Today we celebrate the 500th birthday of the polymath and genius Leonardo da Vinci.

This year, millions upon millions of words will be lavished on him by the world’s leading experts.  I’ll confine my thoughts to a simple Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Dad!

April 25, 2019

 

Today my father would have been 92 years old.  He has been gone almost 20 years now, but I seem to speak with him more often these days than I ever did when he was alive.  He was a wonderful man and, I now recognize, a marvellously supportive parent; an attribute that I was too dumb to notice far too often when I was younger.


Happy 420 2019!
