frost in the garden
allegro con spirito
everything glitters

Kim M. Russell, 2016

My response to Carpe Diem #1091 Sonata in E, Op. 1/3 by Cecilia Maria Barthélemon

Chèvrefeuille has shared another piece of music by a female composer, Cecilia Maria Barthélemon (1767-1859), an English singer, composer, pianist, and organist who published sonatas and occasional music. He also shared one of his own haiku:

fragile beauty
caresses the young flowers
a blue butterfly

    1. Thank you, Kerry, you’ve cheered me up. I’m having problems with WordPress: first I lost the whole of my menu, then I got it back again and now I’ve lost at least half of the pages I’d added to it. I’m thinking of changing the plan I’m currently on but I’m scared that I’ll lose more pages or even posts. I can’t focus on writing at the moment because I’m waiting for someone from the support team to get back to me. As I told them in a previous email , everything was fine until they changed the layout. Sorry for the big moan, Kerry. I really needed a sympathetic ear 😦
