This morning I was at the sink rinsing dishes. My husband was standing next to me fiddling with the coffee maker. Our son was practicing trumpet downstairs. (NOTE: he was playing well. It was the music in the air that prompted my question) I asked my husband, "what do you think the great composers like Mozart and Beethoven would have said about how beginning musicians these days sound playing their great pieces? You know, those painful first recitals?"
All of a sudden the plastic cover on the light over the sink fell off into the sink.
Husband said, "I guess there's your answer."
