My dear mother, Natalie, died today.

She was not a religious woman, certainly not a Roman Catholic, but loved Mozart, a love she faithfully passed on to me.

I think she would approve of this as an appropriate way to start to say good-bye.

It’s it for now. Thanks,

    Mudge, you seem of late to have had far more then your share of unhappy events. It is my hope that you and yours will be receiving all the best in future, having had enough pain as is.

    In times of loss it isn’t Mozart’s “Requiem”, but
    Mozart’s “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” I listen to…

    The scientifically impossible I do right away
    The spiritually miraculous takes a bit longer
