just a lovely experience.

I knew he was learning the piano, and we were out at a party on Sunday night in a 'music-venue ' pub in town. I casually asked if he had come across Fur Else or Moonlight Sonata as yet.....we went to the piano in the corner..and played both peices straight of, with me sat beside him. IT was so effing brilliant. He was cheered at the end of each peice, and then told me it was the first time he had played in front of anyone!!

ah. just so lovely....

Awesome as they say over here. Been in the high 80's (f) this weekend. Terrific thunderstorms all day here, but still amazing. I love the huge skies they have here - goes with Moonlight Sonata have to say . Will send some of my Colorado sunshine your way very shortly.
