1. Thanks for these. Bookmarked too.

The first three are pleasantly pastoral while the penquins in the 3rd one were a hoot to watch. I'm a sucker for flatted sevenths so the 4th works too. And what can you say about some Chopin rounding up the whole set.

2. "I rely on the kindness of strangers." 😊

I studied strictly ballet from 5-15 and my Russian instructor had a penchant for Chopin that we did adagio to.

He tried to encourage me in considering going pro in NYC, but I chose not to.

3. From my point of view that was a wise choice. In retrospect, was it?

If I may ask.

4. 'Twas the correct choice, and I never had regrets.

Score one good choice I made in my earlier years. 😇
