"I can't go on, I'll go on." Samuel Beckett

Hello all.

I've been around for a long, long time.

Currently listening to Scarlatti and Haydn (also my most recent purchases).

But, I now mainly listen to electronic music.

Welcome back from me too.

My favourite play stage direction is definitely at the end of 'Waiting for Godot' (forgive misquotes) when one character says to the other one:

'Shall we go?'

the other replies:

'Yes, let's go'.

and the stage direction states '(nobody moves)'
"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm" (Churchill).

'The test of a work of art is, in the end, our affection for it, not our ability to explain why it is good' (Stanley Kubrick).

Hurrah!  Welcome back.  There can never be too many rational voices around.
