Glenn Gould: Happy Seventy-Eighth

Colored pencil on paper.

September 25:

Glenn Gould was born on this day 78 years ago. During his short fifty years on Earth he helped many, intended or not, change their lives with his exceptional gift of music, and the very treasure he left behind continues to do just that. That is, more than plenty indeed. May his music continue to shower upon us and save us from our earthly troubles, give us love, joy, and most of all, the precious sense of his existence on this planet: that the musician was so powerfully alive with generous ideas that were eventually meant for us.
