… really! I hate memorization. I know my solos when I’m playing them, and if the wind blew the music off the stand I could —I should!— continue. But I still don’t want to be told I have to play by memory. I blame my brain. But who knows? Maybe I’m just lazy. Probably so.

T, blogger at Notes of an Anesthesioboist, brought a video to my attention. This little guy likes to memorize. He recites “Litany” by Billy Collins. I love Billy Collins. I also love this little boy! Wow!

Gee, he even gets the —es in there! 🙂

And thank you, T, for reminding me that this is National Poetry Month!
