Thread Name: Happy! – Dec 16 (Beethoven)
Subject: RE: Happy! – Dec 16 (Beethoven)
He has pride of place next to my computer. I look to him when inspiration is drying up. The glower I invariably get seems to say "Get a grip, man!" Sometimes when I post here I try to pretend I'm even more bad-tempered then he was, but the sweetness and light that inform all my posts are testament to my abject failure in that regard. In spite of his reputation, he was a genuine human being. Listen to the E minor piano sonata Op. 90 for proof. Or anything really.
