A piece for active listening I’ve taken up on this crisp blue morning, and another bit of music for which I have my first college roommate to thank for an introduction some 33 years ago.
The accompanying video is, well, awesome. But I close my eyes, breathe deeply and fully; this music can transport me to places no imagery can. Be patient. The long, reserved introduction is, I am sure, intended to clear the aural palate, so to speak. It also serves to quiet the mind, provides an opportunity to clear distractions and become mindful in anticipation of something very special.
Today’s first exercise in saying yes.
