“Bayern wählt” - Bavaria votes
Today the streets are full of people taking a walk in the sun and ending up in the local school to cast their votes in the regional elections. Many are probably wondering if their voices will be strong enough to bring about any changes they are hoping for.
I didn’t go to vote today, I only get a chance in the local elections, so I didn’t go out for a stroll to the polling station, but even so I am still wondering about the strength of my voice. I am asking myself can conductors and the rest of the conductive world collectively have a voice strong enough to bring about the changes that we hope for.
I thank my lovely mum for treasuring, for 47 years, the books from my first years at school. On my visit home just weeks before she died I found these books awaiting me on my bed. The pictures which head this posting come from the books dating from 1962, 1964 and 1967. My Mum always hoped for the best for her family and I thank her for the encouragement she gave me which was obviously enough to make an artist out of the child who did these first funny drawings.
