A good read if you have the time…

I always like to share ideas, and I’ve just been turned on to the following blog entry that is worth reading.

Irish Stew #16″ by Stephen Moore

Please read this. Actually, I’m not even at the end of it yet because I got a phone call in the middle of doing this blog (Hi Mary!!!) so I’m going to save it and get it out. It is so good. I need to write to the author, Mr. Moore, saying how much I liked his entry, too.

OK. Enough. Things are percolating in politics today and I need to get back to the TV to see where the “October Surprises” are going.

And just to wash the politics taste out of your mouth for now, do watch this little video of a 6-year-old girl from England. Alma Deutscher (aged 6) playing Haydn Sonata in G – 1st movement, Sep 2011.


Little Alma (aged 7 here) has recently written her first opera, called “The Sweeper of Dreams”:


Now there is where all my God-given talent must have gone! I know I never got my share so Alma must have mistakenly gotten mine. Unbelievable.

    Steve’s blog is worth reading regularly, in my opinion. Irish Stew #17 was also good. Glad to have pointed it out to you! Take care!

    Yes, TT, I believe the 2nd YouTube video on my page is all about Alma’s opera, or maybe it’s just mentioned in the video. Yes, this little girl is a gem.

    Funny you should post about Alma. I was just watching some videos of her. Did you know she’s written her own opera? She’s 7 years old and wrote a 7 minute long opera that’s actually quite good. It’s called Sweeper of Dreams…

    Brilliant playing! Now I’m late, ’cause I had to listen to the whole thing! 😦

    I’m with Rhu. I started reading the “Irish Stew” but I haven’t finished it. I was stopped at the word oligarchy. I looked the word up and ended up writing an entry for tomorrow’s WoM.

    I need to step away from the TV and just say lots of prayers that there are more sane people out there than what the media is portraying.
