Around 300 years ago a Venetian dipped pen in ink and recorded for perpetuity the lute and mandolin concertos that have been my Sunday morning music of choice for almost four decades.  Kukicha (a Japanese tea) in a tetsubin (traditional cast iron teapot) served in an elegant, handmade white porcelain cup. Lamps lit, sun rising, settling down to an early birthday gift, L’Arabe du future 5.  Perfect start to the day.
