By Sharon Brown on June 21, 2010

Very rarely do we ever meet someone who walks right into our hearts and remains there. Even more rarely do we ever meet one who has lived the history we have only read about in books. It is an honor for me to know Maria, and an even greater honor to share her story with you. Hold on to your hearts, my friends, because Maria will surely touch yours.

I enjoyed both this interview and your story; it is especially interesting to read about first hand experience in some of the most important parts of history.
I imagine it was quite a culture shock to go from Vienna, with all of the music, plays, gardens, and other wonders, to your home here. I enjoy the classics, as well, and would probably enjoy visiting Vienna. I hope you have a pile of music to listen to, and help you relax and enjoy yourself.

Thank you Lance, I just discoverd your post.
I was very much informed by Richard about the life I was to expect, he did not pretend he was anything but a country boy but we would take advantage visiting Boston and New York for plays, opera and symphonies when ever possible which we did quite often.

Though all of our friends were very well educated but in the classical sense, whether it was music, literature or architecture they were totally uninformed. That amazed me no end though it should not have surprised me since Richard was not well informed about it either as he told me in Vienna where he realized how little he knew about such matters, nevertheless he learned quickly with great interest.

When my children became teens, I told them they would have to listen to classical music while I was at home but could enjoy there music when I am away. They adhered to it and today they are very grateful and are very well informed about all the classics.

I have a very good library with music I enjoy listening to, I have a sleeping problem so I simply allow Mozart to sooth my non stop brain that worries about all sorts of things.

Thank you again with appologies for not seeing you post earlier.

I can empathize with the non-stop brain, as I have often woken up at some odd hour, only to have my mind mull over a myriad of problems. Sometimes, I get some of them solved as well, but what an odd time for it!
No need for apologies, we all keep ourselves plenty busy enough. Enjoy your gardens.
