Bank holiday, the Barbican & BENUGO

It’s the bank holiday weekend and I haven’t blogged in a while. So much has been going during my summer in London; BBC Proms season is well under way and this weekend also marks another annual Nottinghill Carnival. 432 more words

Tea

Chopin à la Joplin

I open up the music book
    And sit before the keys;
I play an old familiar hook
    Made specially for these:

I play the "Marche" by Chopin, Fred,
    And play it as a rag,
Although I'm sure he'd rather be dead
    Than hear his march in drag.

Summer has been great, and we’ve had a very mild one here in the Washington, DC area.   427 more words
