mozart's day

While having little to do with gardening, Indianapolis, etc., how could we go through this day and not be grateful for the music of Mozart? Today's his 250th birthday.

When I was in college, the late poet John Ciardi spoke at "chapel" -- I think they had changed the name to University Forum, but it was still being called that -- and he said that we students could never have heads too stuffed with Mozart. Or something like that. I don't remember any other speaker's words of wisdom, but that one has stuck.

What would the world would be like without his music?

Update: Hugh thinks differently.

While driving out of Richmond, VA today, I noticed the forsythia there are already starting to bloom. What a crazy winter!
