Uuf, it’s been a rough 6 weeks or so. But the gorgeous soft fall sunlight and bright glowinggold cottonwood leaves the last few days have left me feeling a bit like this.
In honor of glorious the full moon.
I heard this piece, “Longing,” the 2nd movement of Bulgarian composer Dobrinka Tabakova’s Concerto for Cello and Strings on the radio the other day, and wow is it gorgeous. In fact it left me speechless and near tears, and if I hadn’t been driving I might have broken down completely.
You can read the composer’s thoughts on the piece here. I am going to have to get that album. She is a new composer to me and I will be checking out more of her work. Wow.
Building resiliency in the struggle, tactic # 73: More mezzos, less facebook. Also more Mahler, less facebook would be equally true.
