“One's suffering disappears when one lets oneself go, when one yields - even to sadness.” - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I am feeling rather flat tonight and so very tired. All I need is a soothing piece of music to drink in and be refreshed by.
One cannot go past Dvorak’s “American” String Quartet No 12 in F Major, the second movement of which is a gorgeously plaintive and evocative piece of music. Sad but not depressing; melancholy but not maudlin; poignant but not sentimental…

  1. I can certainly identify with your sad mood. When I had to drive over the mountain on Thursday all I played was sad music. Something about being alone in a car lends itself so well to tears.

    Here is hoping we both feel more up soon.
