About Waldtaube.org

Waldtaube (wood dove) is a character in a wonderful piece of music entitled “Gurrelieder” (Songs of Gurre) by Arnold Schoenberg. Waldtaube’s function in “Gurrelieder” is to comment on the goings-on within the drama.  In this blog I hope to comment carefully and clearly on topics that seem of interest to me and hopefully to you, but which are not chosen around any particular theme. Hence the slogan for my blog site: “Careful thoughts on semi-random topics.” The Wood Dove image that graces this page is courtesy of my granddaughter Madeline.
