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

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.

(To offspring)

And God, walking on Earth, to see how His creation is doing nowadays, saw two young men that sat and wept.

And God stopped, and asked :
"Why are You weeping, My sons ?"

And one answered :
"God, what a question ! We're refugees !"

And God said :
"But why weeping, My sons ? You are young and You are in Europe already !"

And one answered :

Very long ago I saw a suggestive scene on a broken mirror. I don't remember the movie, I remember it was on WW2, it was black and white and there were some very strong scenes. Maybe it was a movie made in SU. The few sequences I remember are the kind some Sovietic directors were masters in creating.

Trying to get a look at reality, to make an image of it, to see and understand is always only partial achieved, like looking into a mirror: it might be accurate, but remains a part,...

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:
