Yesterday I was reading a book a good friend had given me as a gift.
It's titled "Something Worth Leaving Behind" by Brett Beavers and
Tom Douglas, with introduction by Lee Ann Womack.
The reason I bring this up is, within the pages of this book is a
chapter on Mozart. The whole idea of this book is to express the
fact that not everyone is going to leave an amazing legacy such as
Mozart, and others listed in the book. But we each leave amazing
legacies when we love those around us.
Now you ask, what the heck is Liz geting at? Hmmmm well while
reading the chapter on Mozart, I had this funny feeling HK has read
this book and sees himself and his Eckankrap as one of those amazing
legacies... well in his own mind anyway.
Make sure you place yourself in an eckie HK sort of mood frame,
while you read these words. Though I am sure the fine folks that
wrote this book, do not want to be or have any correlation to HK or
Here is what I am talking about:
From the book, Something worth leaving behind page 20
"Hey Mozart, what kind of name is Amadeus?"
I guess he would say it's Austrian, since that's where he was born.
Actually, his whole name is pretty cool...
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 - 1791)
Mozart is considered to be one of the most creative musical geniuses
of all time.
Check out this timeline:
Age 4 ~ He shows remarkable musical talent and learns to play piano.
Age 5 ~ He begins composing music.
Age 6 ~ He plays for Empress Maria Theresa of Austria.
Age 14 ~ He has already composed many works for the harpsichord,
piano, and violin, as well as orchestral works.
Early 20s ~ He is virtually ignored by the courts of Europe.
But Mozart presses on under difficult circumstances and composes his
most enduring work during the later years of his life.
Then age 35 ~ HE dies in poverty from a feverish illness and is
buried in a Vienna suburb with little ceremony... in an unmarked
Yet Mozart lives on to this day in the more than six hundred works
of music he left behind.
What was the secret to his greatness and genius? He listened with
his heart and heard...
Possibilities. When he saw a violin... he heard a concerto.
When he stood in an empty concert hall... he heard angels singing.
When he looked at a blank manuscript... he heard Symphonies.
What is a Symphony?
A symphony is a gift to the world from the one who conceives it,
labors over it, and then... leaves it behind for all the world to
A reminder... of the beauty one person can create.
Violins, cellos, basses. Woodwinds and brass. Percussion. Working
together like... the beating of a HEART.
The slow introduction
The rising of the second movement
The crescendo to the grand finale.
(Kind of like... life)
The crowd flows out into the street Lifted...
Above the noise of jackhammers and horns and sirens.
Floating along on an
Of the music made
Of the precious memories
Of the life lived.
Well the book continues.... ;-) I just thought I could hear HK
playing Mozart in the background as he was writing his mythical
wisdom note for Sept. 2006, trying to create his own likeness of
Mozart, to the followers of Eckankrap. He will leave a mark, what a
martyr he has become, all frugal and all.... kind of like Mozart?
Only in his delusional mind!
