Greetings Mary,

I hope you and your family are well. Looks like you have been keeping busy; your web site has grown and is as wonderful as ever. For me, September has always been a 'run-around-can't-sit-down' kind of month, but, I can't believe that my October has been just as hectic. Unfortunately, November shows no sign of reprieve...Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for sharing part of this piano concerto...truly uplifting in spirit...How can anyone not love Beethoven? One of my most favourite pieces to play was Chopin's Waltz in B Minor Op.69 No.2 - sad to say, but, over the years, I haven't kept up with it - now when I try to play it, my hands can't keep up with my mind...still, I am determined to get back into it soon. (I'm very pleased that my daughter loves music and is learning to play the piano and clarinet right now.)

Remember Roman Polanski's 2002 film The Pianist? That's another film favourite of mine + another beautiful piece by Chopin that I love - Nocturne in C# Minor...

Moving right along, did your grandchildren go trick-or-treating for Halloween this year? My daughter was a ghost from a masked ball, a rock star and a 50's chick (poodle skirt and all). So many celebrations - we're still recovering from all the Halloween hoopla over the past week...in addition, I still have spiders, webs, pumpkins and skeletons all over the house...

Well, thanks for your musing. I enjoyed it. Take care!
