I have been listening to nothing but classical music lately and found it has been very inspiring and refreshing. It is Mozart’s birthday week and on King FM in Seattle, they have been playing a steady diet of his works. It has been delightful and has brought out my creativity as I work on a new book about a true story in Russia.
Along with Mozart, they have also been playing Beethoven, Back, Bizet and others and it has been very edifying for me. I can identify somewhat with Mozart and Beethoven, who were both geniuses, misunderstood, not appreciated by their generation. I feel the same way, as an unappreciated genius when it comes to the novels I have written and published. I hope someday soon, in my lifetime, my generation appreciates and acknowledges the quality of my writings.
