Spiegel im Spiegel

I’ve been so busy this last week that I really needed to unwind a bit on Sunday morning, for which purpose I picked this beautifully spare and sublimely contemplative piece by the great Estonian composer Arvo Pärt. This music always makes me think of the first line of the Desiderata

Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence

..except of course that it’s not silent.
