Ragnar, try The Protecting Veil by Tavener.  Isserlis played it on the recording I have, I believe.  I haven't seen it since our last move, but there's still boxes around here, so I'm not considering it in need of replacement yet.  Schelomo is a lovely peice, very fun to play as well as listen to.

And any of you guys who love heavy metal or Shostikovich, you have GOT to check out Apocalyptica.

Cool. Thanks for sharing. I just put this on reserve at the local liberry  :mellow:

I can relate to a lot of this.  I don't know what I want to do yet or what path I'll follow (or trailblaze for myself) yet.  Though I have to say that after making it as a runaway who now should not have to fear coming under the scrutiny of the legal powers and locked away, I'm rather annoyed that I find myself more in that position yet again....  :blink:

(sorry snip)
And that's how I keep my sanity, such as it is, for the time being.   :P

Yep, Dervish fits, Shaman might also.  Look it up, if you haven't already.
........Duct tape is like the force, it has a light side, a darkside and holds the universe together.  It is theoretically reinforced with strings too.  (The dome has a darkside, lightside and strings of rebar for reinforcement too!)
Most of the time news is about the same old violations of the first principles of consent and golden rule with a dash of force thrown in........ with just enough duct tape to be believable.
