25 Influences

Thank you Linda Linda S. Socha for tagging me for my 25 influences.

Working through such a list also implies "thank yous" that perhaps haven't been given.

This took a lot of thinking,
*********************************
1. My mother, of course, for good and bad
2. Classic Comics.
3. Jules Verne.
4, The Metropolitan Opera Saturday Broadcasts.
5. J. S. Bach.
6. W. A. Mozart.
7. Beethoven.
8. The operas of Richard Wagner.
9. Stravinsky.
10. Alban Berg.
11. Edward Thommen.
12. Constantine Stanislavski.
13. Shakespeare.
14. Eugene O'Neil.
15. Samuel Beckett.
16. The Beatles.
17. Paul Scofield.
18. John Cage.
19. The Bible.
20. Friedrich Nietzsche.
21. Immanuel Kant.
22. Thomas Hobbes.
23. John Moore.
24. Linda Pinkham.
25. My computer.

Who wants to go next?

I rarely do these, so I'll pass, but I enjoyed reading your list! Some familiar, some unknown.

I love your list, DB! I have held a great many of these close to my bosom since adolescence.

WOW DB. I get your mother, the Beatles and the Bible, but I don't even know who half of those people are. I don't know if I could even come up with 25. LOL.
Hugs, Joyce

I just might give it try, I like things like that there! When I don't know? I like most of what you picked on your list. I love how J.V. was so wise on the future.

Thanks,
Wes
