|Mozart Pere, via Der Wik|
Fortunately, we have a Mozart piece to restore our hope (as embodied in the concept of motherhood) for future generations. It's not from the Mozart, nor from his mother (of whom I know precisely nothing), but it is from his father. And it's playful - written for symphony accompanied by toys, ratchet, nightingale, and cuckoo. Somehow, this made me think on all mothers who found themselves dealing with toddlers all day and hoping for some sort of adult diversion. And of me watching all that.
A very happy Mother's Day wish to all mothers, and to everyone who had a mother. Here's a performance that covers you and your children both.
May the day remind you of the silly but unforgettable moments your shared those many years ago. And if you are lucky enough to be experiencing those days today, then I envy you. May the day be a delight, and a source of memories for years to come.
