The artistic side: recharging my humanity
Long-time readers of this blog have probably gotten the idea that I think it's important to read a variety of sources to expand my mind. I also think it's important to listen to a variety of types of music to expand my capacity for expressing emotions.
Today Kyle Gann blogged about types of modern classical music that may be new to many. He includes a link to Dream in White on White by John Luther Adams. Put on your headphones, settle back (the entire piece is 17 minutes long), and see what dreams you conjure up. Then see if you're refreshed, recharged, and ready to tackle that next challenge (or perhaps ready to go home and enjoy time with your family).
