I played the piano for a living. Flirted with jazz and she flirted back, but classical was prepared to jump my bones. Hence the love affair. Now I'm learning how to write, I'm finding writing the same as classical music - it's about the rhythm, the beat, the flow, the voice, the hearing of one unintended note and then building an entire theme around it to tell a great story. Nice to know the rules, though. It gives you the unspoken authority to break them with graceful glee. Tipping a Glenmorangie to all. Thanks Janet.
I could argue that one has to be arrogant to call another arrogant. The same goes for pedantry.
What a visual treat! What encouragement! Thanks!
