Sunday Serendipity

I was checking out possible Christmas music but I think we should wait another week. So I looked in the “some time in the future” folder where I stick stuff I run across for enjoying at a later date. I hope this provides some calm as you recover from yesterdays hectic shopping. It did for me the other day

Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 5 in E‑flat Major the “Emperor Concerto”, Rosalía Gómez Lasheras, the young lady playing the piano is 25 and she has been playing the piano since she was 5.

Enjoy, Jack


George Washington on ‘Unprincipled Men’

“However political parties may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”

— George Washington, Farewell Address (Sept. 17, 1796)
