Bach, Nathan Milstein - Partita No 2. in D Minor, BWV1004, Chaconne
There is a way to prolong
The divergence of paths
From that which is normal
To that which is interesting.
An act one would only do
When motivated by fear,
Or a false but compelling
Sense of obligation.
Embark to return nevermore.
A vessel transports
To a nether newfoundland
Where the learned grow,
Until all potential
Is sated by the knowledge
That life was pursued.
Perhaps, if only, maybe someday.
So it seems the aphasia has almost set in. I was reviewing some of the history of this blog, and it has almost completely moved away from any sort of original writing. I think the last original piece I posted was Writs, which was really an esoteric ramble produced on a weird night (it really was weird; it was especially foggy where I live, while other parts of the city yielded a view of a massive moon; I remember going out for drinks and being a bit overwhelmed).
I also think I’m losing my ability to critically articulate my thoughts. I found myself attempting a response to Paula Braconnot’s work, and upon reviewing my writing, realized I’d said something that sounded inane/borderline pretentious and quickly erased my comments. All I really wanted was to express my appreciation for the myriad sources she references in her work, both classical and contemporary. Why was that so difficult?
