Post #1,500, On Music

Welcome to the 1,500th post on this blog. Not surprisingly, it is about music.  Is there a time of the year when music is more important than during the Christmas Holidays?

I picked the piece below as it reminds me of being a child and the many happy memories I have of my parents, grandparents and other family members at Christmas. Something tells me I’ll be making some hot chocolate this evening, watching A Charlie Brown Christmas, while recalling some of those good times and probably shedding a tear or two, as I am now while putting down these thoughts.

It was Albert Einstein that once said, “I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.”

 I will add that I often find my memories in music.

While there are so many complex, beautiful pieces of music that we think of at Christmas, such as Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker,  I decided to pick something a little simpler.

From 1965, by the late, Vince Guaraldi. . .
