Next year is the 200th anniversary of Chopin's birth--I should write an article about him--reading a biography, listening to his music--it's hard to get an insight into him--but, as is true for so many others, it was Chopin who got me interested in classical music--as a child, I was mesmerized by the Waltz in C Sharp Minor--


Caught in a Traffic Trap

Got a traffic ticket in Lodi, NJ--went through a stop sign--why? because I expected a YIELD sign--you can easily see all the oncoming traffic--
cops stationed by STOP sign, pulling drivers over--lots of cars pulled over--
curses on Lodi, NJ, cops--

Fallingsout With Friends

I'm angry at a lot of former friends--
Why does this seem to happen as one grows older?

One couple: boring
A woman: right-winger, attacked my left-wing views
A lower-class woman, defended Sarah Palin
Old friend, male, verbally abused me in front of friends
Woman I admire--rarely contacts me
High school friend: bullied me
Another high school friend: ignorant, shallow political views (anti-Obama)
Still other high school friends: snooty, rude
Neighbor: desperate to show how knowledgeable he is--rude--arrogant--
