I apologize for a delay in posting. There have been many events. The worst, however, is difficulty logging in to Windows/Microsoft. I supply a password. It works, but suddenly it no longer works. I do not think the password is the problem but something else. I am also facing criminality on the Internet.
As for my posts, the next one is a song in which the Vent du Nord ensemble express an opinion on Confederation. At this point, statues of the main father of Confederation have been removed. A building or buildings named after him have been renamed.
I have been updating posts on La Fontaine. La Fontaine’s Official Site is no longer the same, so the link to the text of the fables must be changed. These posts are listed on a page and, to my knowledge, all have been updated. In the days of Covid-19, informative posts may benefit students.
Where the Pandemic is concerned, the rapid emergence of variants combined with civil disobedience are undermining the vaccination campaign. The number of victims has risen. It seems that Easter has been as deadly as Christmas and refusal to wear a mask or to be vaccinated are deadlier still. It would be my opinion that governments respond to protest by loosening sanitary measures prematurely.
My memory is playing tricks on me. It’s a neurological issue caused by the virus H1N1, which I caught in February 1976. Beware of “slow Covid.”
Given the passing of Prince Philip, I am playing my “royal” music, the second movement of Beethoven’s 7th Symphony. It has long been a favourite.
Love to everyone 💕

Sending good thoughts.
And the number of covidiots in the world is astounding. It’s a shame we have to endure with the consequences of their ignorance. And thank-you for the music.

Sending good thoughts to you as well. Covidiots are harming us considerably. There was an unfortunate demonstration in Vieux-Montréal last weekend and feasts such as Easter lead to disaster. You are right, it is plain ignorance. In fact, infected protesters think they are the victims of a conspiracy on their deathbed. Thank you for writing.

Hope you will be better – with spring coming
( please – no hunt ! )
No hunt, but that painting is beautiful. I hope we soon overcome Covid-19.
Many deny the severity of the virus and put several lives at risk. They do not know what they are doing. J’espère que les Français sont plus sages. Mes amitiés, France.
Thank you for Beethoven and the lovely painings, dear Micheline.
I hope you are well and keeping safe, regardless of the growing multitudes of pandemic denials.
The Pandemic denials allow Covid-19 to spread. I take considerable comfort in music, the fine arts and literature. I hope you are well. My computer barely works. It may be viruses. Stay safe until this Pandemic is over. The denials prevent progress. People will not wear their masks or wash their hands. And they congregate. But vaccination continues. Much love, M
I do hope at least something improves for you soon, Micheline
If my computer starts working again, I will be very pleased. No one knows whether my memory will improve. For instance, I will forget how to spell a word or not be able to concentrate for a day or so. This is the human condition, but I wish to continue doing what I love doing. Stay safe, the virus has not left.

Ce mouvement de la septième symphonie de Beethoven m’émeut profondément.
Quelle belle régularité et générosité dans tout ce que vous partagez avec nous Micheline. Portez-vous bien.
J’ai attrappé un virus, le H1N1. Les conséquences ont été dévastatrices. Heureusement, on a remarqué la même chose chez certaines personnes qui ont été infectées par le coronavirus. J’espère qu’on pourra leur éviter une maladie chronique. On en sait plus long de nos jours. Bonne journée, Yves.

Ce mouvement de la septième de Beethoven est mon préféré également.
Merci pour cette régularité et générosité dans tout ce que vous partagez avec nous. Portez-vous bien Micheline.
Bonjour Yves, Ce mouvement est l’un des meilleurs de toutes les compositions. Il se déroule lui-même. Beethoven partait d’une petite structure qu’il laissait se développer. Je suis ravie que ce mouvement soit votre préféré. Merci beaucoup, Yves
