Beautiful music

Hi, Princess!

Remember when you used to come over and play with my keyboard, and remember when you used to dance to my classical music? Well, maybe you don’t, but that’s okay.

I just watched Janine Jansen perform Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor. I don’t know if you even like classical music, but I’d like you to watch and listen to just this one piece. Please…

Right now, Janine Jansen is the greatest violinist on earth. She started playing the violin when she was six years old. She practiced eight hours a day. Most people work eight hours a day! But to be this fantastic, it goes beyond being able to play the notes perfectly, no matter how difficult. When you watch her play, you can see the emotion come right out of her and through the violin. No amount of practice can bring out that kind of emotion. That’s what really makes her the greatest violinist on earth.

I just wanted you to enjoy this. I really hope you do!

All my love,

Little things

Hi Leslie.

Nothing new going on with me. I just wanted to check in and let you know I’m still thinking of you. I think about you and your mom every day. Little things remind me of you and little things remind me of your mom all the time. Like, there’s this rundown tire shop that sells used tires and makes a big profit off of poor people. But that’s another story.

Sometimes I pass the shop and it reminds me of the time your mom got her tax refund and instead of spending it on herself, she paid off her car and got new tires. She was being responsible.

Anyway, that’s just an example of little things reminding me about you and your mom all the time. Hopefully my next post will be more interesting!

Love you always and forever,

Hi, Princess!

My favorite show is Doctor Who. He is a Time Lord from another planet who travels through space and time in a Police Box. A Police Box is basically a kind of telephone booth that they had in England before you were even born! Anyway, he always travels with a companion. The companion is usually a human. This season we have a new companion!

Can’t wait!

Love you always,
