Piano and Classical Music enthusiast, writer and poet and sometime artist
What is this blog about you may ask? Originally I had little idea, except to post a few inspirational quotes and some of my fiction..and it has grown in ways I didn’t expect, and I am growing with it. I began to write poetry as well as fiction and have I added pages of my work. The main blog entries mostly feature posts on classical music, especially period performances, articles and videos on music history, composers I admire, historical musical instruments and history and old books. I love collecting unusual vintage/antique books- I love their thick pages and old scent. They have such charm!
Recently I have started painting and have added a page about my art- Colours Meet Music and Verse.
Above is a photo of my beloved Old Cecil Piano, who is about 100 years old, but sadly the tuner can no longer tune Cecil, so although Cecil still plays ( out of tune) I have a Casio Privia digital piano too.
I love writing and painting; more of my works will be posted on my pages as more comes through; so please keep coming back to see what is new. 🙂
Another favourite pastime of mine is having days out in beautiful parks, historic houses, museums and gardens. Here is a link to my flickr photo stream:

I also have a tumblr blog:
Another interest of mine is the 1960s TV show Dark Shadows. Here is the Google+ Group for the show:
