Every day, something surprises, delights, or appalls.
Below is some of that, though most of it leaves me speechless, as you can see.

Somewhere in Italy, my Bach-Siloti prelude and rabbits
Speaking of Italy (5 months ago ... I'm a bit behind), I was tickled to find a short video online, somewhere in Italy, using, appropriately enough, a short piece I recorded a couple of years ago when getting my then-new Yamaha. It's a transcription by Siloti -- in 19th Century style, with lute-like bass -- of a prelude by Bach. Romantic in style, it was written for his daughter when she was young. Protty's set of videos that record aspects of lives of rabbits are viewable here (translated to English via Google webpage-translator, and some wonderful photos are here on Robert Ellero's site.
