I’d like to wish all who celebrate Christmas, or all who’d like to accept a wish about a Merry Christmas, a “Merry Christmas, and to all, a good night.” And a happy new year. We all need more happiness.
To help send my wish along, I’d like to share with you a one minute, nineteen second (that’s right, just 1:19!) video of my 83-year old mom playing Ave Maria (Bach/Gounod version) on her Hamlin & Mason grand piano on Christmas Eve, 2012. My mom is a tremendously accomplished and talented musician, singer and educator. My dad (who died in December 1977) gave her the piano instead of an engagement ring. They would have been married 54 years on Christmas day. (Hey, they were Jews in the city! Who knew from Christmas! They easily booked a swanky mid-town restaurant for their modest affair.)
Please enjoy the video and share it if you like it.
Peace on Earth, good will toward HUMANS.
