As some of you are well aware, the older I get, the more I share the sentiments Einstein so famously uttered:
“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.”
On a Very Special Day and a Most Special Birthday for my Bride, at least a part of my thoughts, in music:
More seriously, and, perhaps, even more creatively
After that Magyar Magic, consider the words of the old Hungarian proverb that I first heard without you in Vienna:
“May you live a thousand years, and I a thousand less one day, that I might never know the world without you.”
“From the heart – may it reach the heart!”
wrote Beethoven on the score of his Missa Solemnis.
A very special Happy Birthday!
