Music to soothe the ravaged cubehead

I cannot live without headsets.

Living in cube-farm city and being exposed to other’s conversations and sometimes arguments, I find it necessary to retreat into my own space when I have work I need to concentrate on.

Youtube sometimes offers a diversion, music-wise. Today I found a recording/video of Jascha Heifetz and Eric Friedman of the Bach Double Concerto, Second Movement.   I suddenly felt as if I’d rediscovered an old friend or at least some piece of knowledge or article of faith that once served as grounding point for me. Years ago, I actually wrote the entrance essay to my undergrad about this piece of music and how it influenced me. 

Today after listening to it, I felt that  it still helps me create a safe place of solitude for my inner voice.  We forget these things when we live and struggle in structures where we feel that we have little or no control over what we do.
