Happy Birthday, Johann

Today we celebrate the birthday of J.S.Bach!  Although I never met the maestro - on earth, that is - he was a tremendous musical influence on me, most especially after I discovered his Well-Tempered Klavier, which improved my counterpoint immensely.   If I weren't hovering between my current home and yours (it does look quite beautiful in New York City this morning), I would be joining the entire Bach family for pastries and baroque dancing this  evening.  As it is, I shall merely hover, and perhaps listen in on one of the many performances of Johann's music that are taking place all over your world today.
