Happy 198th birthday to our beloved Poet of the Piano. Hard to believe another year has gone by.
If only I could get my time machine to work...

You're such a sap, Monica. :lol: I wonder what Chopin would think of a world full of women who dress like men and do things that only men are supposed to do. :lol:

Oh, J. You always say that. This is mild stuff. You can't possibly be that innocent.

Yes, happy birthday to the greatest composer of all time! I'm sure it would make him feel good to know that at least some people in this world are wishing him a happy birthday.

I feel kind of bad... my dad's birthday is today too, and I don't know if he can tell if I care more that it's his birthday or Chopin's birthday, haha.

... ... ... ... ... Is it bad for me to have played through Chopin's funeral march from the 2nd sonata, his funeral march released posthumously, and his Prelude in C Minor today, without realizing that it's his birthday???

Now I feel a little dirty ... :shock:

Sorry Chopin! Happy birthday!

I'll totally make up for it in 2 years!
