Hanukkah circa 1960 [by Lewis Saul]

There I am on stage with older sister Wendy; and Lynn (z’l) and little brother, Alan.

It looks like I got some kind of game – but it was Lynn who knew what I really wanted.

A Hanukkah or two after this picture she got me the scores of the Nine Beethoven Symphonies which was the greatest gift anyone has ever given me. By the time I was 11 or 12 I had memorized most of the music.

I’m looking over my studio today and there are scores everywhere! Thank you Lynn for leading me on this fabulous eternal journey.
