I've been living here for a while - it's super comforting to me - big, open, full of space and yet, warm and comfortable - almost like going back to the womb.

When the strings come in - my heart breaks - I don't know why.  It reminds me of a Schubert String Quintet (which will be up here soon) - there's something about the beauty of the melancholy - the exquisiteness of how the tones all work together in soul-searing harmony.

It is indeed beautifully sad and I do feel better by the end of it...
