Sunday, December 4

Hi, Leslie!

Well, it’s Sunday, and I remember when your mommy was little we had a routine every Sunday. We would have a big breakfast while listening to Breakfast with the Beatles on the radio. They played all Beatles songs for two hours. Then we would watch the Sunday morning news show, where people would debate and yell at each other over politics. Then we would watch the football shows. Then we would try to do something outdoors or whatever.

I know it sounds boring, and I was being selfish because we did everything I wanted. But it was really the only day when I wasn’t working, so it was sort of my day. Looking back, maybe I should have done things differently.

But my favorite day of the year is coming up pretty soon…

Love ya,

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,
