It is the end of the busy, busy day of a most busy season. I have begun my winter cleaning ritual, the arduous task of downsizing and donating, tax preparation, and preparing for the coming week's festivities. Needless to say, it can be a bit cumbersome, as we have a large family. At the end of a long day, and once my angels from tall to small are tucked away in bed and fast asleep, I treat myself to a little bit of self-indulging solitude.
A fireside reverie
and the soft, soothing music of Satie.
It is a wonderful way to end the night
and bid a final farewell to the Fall,
for it will be winter soon.
I hope you'll enjoy the sights paired with the sounds of Satie's Gymnopédies and Gnossiennes in the following link. This is a YouTube video I watch or listen to quite often. The beauty of the piano combined with wonderful images of nature is sublime. You might have to be on a PC in order to view, but it is worthwhile.
Have you began your Christmas shopping?
