I always liked jokes.
I like them not only cause they're funny, but good jokes use to have a way of their own to say more that they should.
Not sure that the joke i like are good. Nor that You will like them.
But hey, as I can have my blog, I will post them.
You can just ignore it
Or You can ask the mods to shut the blog, too

p.s. hope You will not mind if I will post some of my thoughts and impressions beside the jokes

Rasul Gamzatov, on his visit to Japan learned about the young girl from Hiroshima, a girl contracting leukemia after the atomic bombing. The girl that folded, as the old tradition wants, the thousand origami. Ofcourse, it wasn't enough for saving her young life ....

Hiroshima, Sadako Sasaki, the thousand...

Long time ago, I looked to a music score.

It's a bit of an interesting thing. It's like writing, but with all kind of sounds instead of letters, forming melodies instead of words, Mazurkas instead of Poems.

There's only seven notes, not twenty-I-don't-know-how-many letters. It's complicated. There are short, long, shorter, longer, there are silences, louder, softer notes. Staccato, portato, allegro con fuoco. All sort of indication.

It was a piano...

( I dedicate this to Zhang LaoYong, upssa1 and Perados, as they are the ones making me think to start this )

I've had this fascination for «barbarians» since I was a kid. All those people sprouting out of some far east no place .....

For a long time I did not understood what put into their heads this «go west» impulse that had been transmitted to so many of us. Later, as I travelled a bit, I started to understand. I don't know why, my interest was a lot diminished...

Sincerely, I don't think I can (nor am I entitled) tell more than the fact I adore his playing.

It would be more appropriate just to let some personalities speak on Richter:

There was a small book antiquarian very close to my place. No big deal, but it made me appreciate books. I began enjoying going and looking around. The smell of old books, that odd diversity of formats, those strange subjects ...

Going into small used books shops at the corner is one of the small pleasures of life that I would never deprive myself. I think. I hope.
