I miss your Rachmaninov avatar, Andrei.

Which one? The younger one, the older-and-capped one or the older-and-smiling one?

Honestly, I'm quite happy with the current one. Insp. Brackenreid is an old style, law-and-order guy who loves opera and theater and has no patience for the Temperance League. A man after my own heart. :D

This one, right?



My, my, my! It never crossed my mind that my former avatars were so popular.  :D

No, the one I am thinking of you had for years. An overhead perspective, the flowers were more yellow, as I recall and the background was lighter.

I can visualize it too, George.

Bingo!

I chose that one, and later the anemones, because of the Flores part of Florestan.

All others made a direct statement about me: unabashedly romantic (Rachmaninoff, Schumann, Schubert), unabashedly melody-oriented (Mozart, Chopin), unabashedly opposed to the bloody Temperance League (the current one).  :D

Which one should be my permanent avatar? John, what say you?  :D

I think Schubert should be your permanent avatar. He seems to be your numero uno or am I mistaken?

I’m going to try to stick with Berg for awhile. I still find him to be one of the most fascinating composers of the 20th Century.
