      Faraday’s Candle: I’m so glad to hear you too like Johann Sebastian Bach and his music.

      Bach himself meant his music was the voice of God Almighty. In this blog post you can read more about the composer and his music: .

      Although I’m an atheist, I too agree with most of what can be read in that Christian blog post.

      May I ask you a kind of shameless question: How old are you? I understand you are in your teens, but you express opinions and have mature thoughts that are more common among educated middle-aged people than teenagers.

      Anyhow, your parents should be very proud of you.

        This is Charles. bbnewsab will recall, that in my humble opinion, the evidence of the inexplicable can only be seen by the shadow it cast. J. S, Bach, in my view, is a giant shadow of the inexplicable. ccr


      2. The middle schooler writing the articles is an extremely gifted writer but does not write on social media or comment. That is on the about page. She does get to read the comments. Well both sisters are extremely into science with very proud parents and teachers.
        Your comments has made their day!!
        Bach was a genius & his music enjoyed to this day!!
        Thank you for the link.

    Extremely gifted – probably by a combination of both nature and nurture, I suppose.

    I think you are like flowers getting good care, lots of sunshine, water, nourishment. They are bound to spread joy, hope and positivism. Maybe also future Nobel laureates?

    Hi, I found you via the comments section on Bun Karyudo’s blog. We appear to have many interests in common (Art, science, music). I’ve recently been exploring a lot more of the classical and jazz world’s that my father has always championed. I’ve listened to the wonderful Bach cello suites on youtube countless times and also Coltrane and Parker among the jazz greats. I shall investigate more of your list and of your blog. Warm regards from a Brit, now resident in Denmark.
