A little piece of thanks

I am listening to the Hebrides Overture by Felix Mendelssohn right now, and it never fails to move and inspire me. Mendelssohn's music often does that for me.

And, if you'd like an inspiring story this morning, I commend to you Felix's sister Fanny (Mendelssohn) Hensel, who was a gifted pianist and composer in her own right, but these were men's work in the 1800s. I still crave recordings of her music, which I've only heard on public radio to date.
