Beethoven, Buddha, and my mom

i've been a bit disconnected from the blog, the internet, etc.
my mom is visiting!
shortly after her arrival, we went to the Copley Symphony Hall
for a Beethoven Festival Piano concert
the program was Beethoven's
Coriolan Overture, Op.62, the Piano Concertos No. 1 and No. 2
it was a lovely evening indeed
although the pianist Yefim Bronfman was replaced by Orli Shaham
she did a good job, but i was looking forward to listen to Yefim
as he has great reviews
also was sad to miss mister Smorgthere
as we planned to meet him at the concert...
hopefully i can meet him soon!


my mom at Copley's, me on the reflection
it's an ugly picture,
but hey! photography is forbidden at Copley's!


and to close this little post
the Buddhist thought of the day:

Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
~Buddha...
