H�l�ne Grimaud & Sol Gabetta - Piano and Violoncello - Duo (Trailer)

Every so often, a musical encounter sees a truly astonishing "musico-biological" process take place. The meeting of the pianist H�l�ne Grimaud and the cellist Sol Gabetta last summer at the Menuhin Festival in Gstaad was one such rare encounter. Two charismatic stars made music together: two performers who play with such a combination of passion and intelligence that time after time they made the classics sound as contemporary as if composed today.

H�l�ne Grimaud e Sol Gabetta, Duo; Brahms - Debussy.

“So when you're cold
From the inside out
And don't know what to do,
Remember love and friendship,
And warmth will come to you.”

wished for you and your loved ones.We are so blessed

Good morning Tonny!
I hope you had a relaxing week-end. Mine was okay, but probably not as exciting as yours. I washed laundry Saturday, put away summer clothes and washed winter clothes, and restocked my closet with warmer-wear. One can never be too cautious about "no clothes" for the weather or climate.
Also, I spent Sunday with my family - good times when we can all get to be together in one place, at the same time, but it's a rare thing now-a-days.
Have a wonderful week, my friend,

Hi Everybody,

Things have been crazy for me lately! It's hard for me to believe that these are the first wallpapers I've uploaded since August 21st! I was afraid that I wouldn't get any walls up this September.

It felt so good upload these just before before October 1st hit. Especially since in Michigan, where I live, a new day/date on Desktop Nexus starts at 8pm, my time!

As some of you know, I have been getting onto DN in bits and snatches, mostly to comment on wallpapers. Especially on Cow Wallpapers! Black & white cows, brown cows, cows on mountains, cows jumping over moons, cows on farms, a cow family in a rowboat, a cow riding a motorcycle! I never know what kind of a cow is going to come down the pike next! It's hard to believe that just a little over a month ago the Cow group only had a dozen wallpapers in it! Thank you everybody who has contributed to this group! It has now started it's 6th page! :D

So what's been keeping me off of DN? Part of it is that I got spoiled, I guess. I got used to having lots more time for DN because of my broken foot and being in a wheelchair. Now that I'm mobile and back to work, much of the time I had for DN is gone. If only I could fit more hours into my day!

In spite of all of that, I know I have so much to be thankful for. It is so good to be able to get around again. I've been taking all kinds of photos, mostly nature ones. Also I've made a new friend at work who breeds and shows Pekinese dogs.

My top favorite breed is (you guessed it!) collies, but it's fun to get to know another breed. I went to a Pekingese specialty show to help my friend out earlier today. When those little long haired dogs enter the show ring, they look so funny-- like furry caterpillars running around! I took a few photos of them, some of which I hope to upload to Desktop Nexus.

DN is one of my favorite places to be, and I'm going to keep right on trying to figure out how to get more time up here. I don't give up easily! :D

Elaine :)

PS. Thank you to all of you who've been dropping by my profile page, & commenting on my wallpapers... even though some of you have probably been wondering where I've been at! :D
