My 75th Birthday.
The best (and maddest) ever.

A bit about Dale

Studio heaven
AND the beginnings of the great clean-up!

They did it well.


And here to see and hear Nigel Kennedy playing the Bulgarian folk song Jovano Jovanke.
I was SO fortunate .. I was in Plovdiv, Bulgaria for a collage week.
Nigel Kennedy, my absolute hero, was playing there in an ancient Roman amphitheatre.
Huge marble steps in a high hill, the most beautiful place, open to the stars.
I couldn’t get a ticket of course, but a young Bulgarian artist at dinner said we would go.
We arrived at half-time, she chatted to a guard, and we were let in to sit on the grass above the marble steps.
The first half he’d played classical, the second half jazz.
And for an encore, playing alone as he walked off among the marble columns, he played this.
Unaccompanied ... it was one of the most beautiful moments of my life.
Aren’t we so lucky to be alive? In spite of the politicians.
