Rare photo M.B.

Marina Basmanova, Brodsky's only love. "I remember when I was arrested, planted, when I was sitting in a cage, I somehow did not pay attention to it. I thought of Marina more than about where I was and what happened to me The two best moments of my life, that life, is when she once appeared in that police station where I sat for a week or ten days. There was such an inner courtyard, and suddenly I heard a meow - she entered the courtyard and mewed for A Andre Masson art

nd the second time, when I was sitting in a madhouse, and I was being pricked than through the yard in malachi with bounded sleeves, I saw only that she was standing in the courtyard ... And this for me was then more important and interesting than anything else ... And this saved me to a certain extent ... "Joseph Brodsky P.S. I've never seen a single photograph of her, except this one, fuzzy and blurry, made by Brodsky himself, where Marina in a knitted cap is standing next to Naiman. There is one more, the same small and incoherent where she is with her son from Brodsky Andrew. And the top photo from the exhibition, it is photographed, so it's also not very clear, as it flashes. But still, an amazing face, right? http://sadalskij.livejournal.com/2076724.html

The parable is wise-wise ...

Four candles burned quietly ...

It was quiet that they could hear them talking.

The first said: "I am calm. People
do not have me save. "And the spark of the candle went out.

The second said: "I am a believer, I do not need anyone." People do not want to hear about me. "
A light breeze blew and put out the candle.

Sad, the third candle said: "I am love. People do not appreciate me." And thi Martin Beaupré art for sale

s candle

 A child entered the room, frightened of the darkness, he cried.

Then the fourth candle said:

"Do not cry. While I'm burning,
you can always light other candles:

I am hope "...

Mendelssohn. Concert for pianoforte and orchestra №1

Felix Mendelssohn (1809 - 1847) - German composer and conductor, one of the largest representatives of the romantic trend in music, the author, in particular, the famous wedding march.

"This is Mozart of the nineteenth century, the brightest musical talent that comprehends the contradictions of the era most clearly and best reconciles them."
R. Schumann

"So happy and rich in talents, surrounded by love and admiration and yet so strong in spirit and heart, he never loosened the reins of religious self-discipline, never transcended the limits of modesty and humility, never ceased to be guided by a sense of duty. The earth did not fail him in any of his joys, the heavens rewarded him with all the gifts for a rich spiritual life. In comparison with such an abundance of peaceful joys, what importance could a watch of bad mood, days of sadness or mournful displeasure with false honors that had been given to him! Sudden death among the works that he started and far-reaching projects, rid him of fears and worldly vanities, completed this brilliant life of a man who was truly happy and endowed with happiness to others. "
