Easter 2014

I have been silent since February 1st, which has not been my intention. But for the past two months, I have been earning a small living by writing, and a blog, therefore is sort of a “busman’s holiday.”

I have also suffered quite a bit in this time, betrayed by a friend and losing a wonderful roommate far too soon. These ruptures had left me tired and unnerved.

But today I turned on PBS (thank God for it!) and they were analyzing the music of Mahler, which I used to love almost above all other music. The agony and triumph of the Resurrection Symphony, my favorite (and that of my father), has lifted me above the idiocy of the mundane and returned me to my true nature, as it were.

Happy Easter to all of you! I wish you many “epiphanies” of a similar sort on this bright Spring day!
