Looks like Vlad did not get the memo. Even his Chinese friends say that enough is enough, and he should quit now. The words of the Chinese foreign minister at the Munich conference were remarkably clear in this respect. I have no idea what Vlad really intends ; if his intentions were to weaken NATO and divide the Europeans, then he failed remarkably.
I have no interest in analysing his seemingly aimless political odyssey, others are much more competent, and get paid for it. Nevertheless I would like to understand where he took the wrong turn. The situation becomes more complicated every day, and sooner or later some kind of solution must be found. We surely do not need another major war caused by the imperial dreams of a senescent man.
The last days and nights saw strong winds around here, last week schools were closed providently. The next storm shall roll in tomorrow. I very much liked the wind’s rushing, and happily opened the window of my sleeping room through the night.
Time to board the Night Train (Eng.), here the piano version by the one & only Oscar PETERSON (1925-2007) (Ger., Eng.), who published in 1963 an album of the same name (Ger., Eng.). Here is the longer original, while I link a shortened & edited version that focuses on PETERSONs playing and shows the sheets to follow. I hope you like the music.
May we face a peaceful week.
