Gorgeous cloud photos, Marina!
Darn it, the Haydn video is unavailable.
And the Bach piece is divine… thank you!
And why is it sometimes you have the twitter share and other times you don’t?
I really don’t know. I am certainly NOT doing anything different. I suppose it’s as inexplicable as WP not recognizing my Linkedin connection every now and then! As I wrote about your Instagram issue @ FB: go figure! 😉 🙄
Aww, thank you, Dale!!!!
See if this works:
I know… Erbarme Dich is one of my dear musical pieces! 😉
Nope. It doesn’t.
No worries… I’ll find it 🙂
I can’t have my lovely Dale unhappy! 😉 xoxoxoxo
Fantastic clouds and music.
I bet you would have produced breathtaking images with those clouds!
So glad you enjoyed!
From time to time. Happy April.
You had me looking up Bach’s birthday, since I remembered the date as being a March twenty-something-or-other. And then I encountered the Old Calendar-New Style conundrum.
Putting him and Haydn on the same birthday somehow seems more fitting, even exciting.
Till last year I thought I had the same birthday as Bach , to my disappointment it was -as you say- Old Calendar [Julian] date 🙄. So you’re not the only one! But I agree with you that it makes perfect sense Haydn & Bach have the same birthdays. Thank YOU!!!
The music piece starts in a dramatic way… Your dramatic skies fit perfectly ❤
Yes it does! So happy you enjoyed the ‘dialogue’ between them!
Happy April, my dearest Sue!
🙂 ❤ 🙂
Ah, Marina – a great day to celebrate music and those who have given the world so much joy.
Oh, they have indeed. Amazing these two were born on the same day, isn’t it?!
Many hugs from across the ocean.
