Writing has its own laws. As a result, blogging about my forthcoming Review of Carl Dahaus’s book on The Idea of Absolute Music took on a life of its own.
The same thing happens when I write articles. I write a plan and then the plan starts generating the article and often does an acceptable job.
That is why, it is so important to write. It is a process of discovery because, suddenly, the subconscious is at work.
So, I’m happy to tell you that “The Idea of Absolute Music” is, at long last, in its final form as a blog, but not as a review. The review is shorter.
In the meantime, the next post is under construction. However, allow me to share a tought (25) I gleaned from the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, as it seems appropriate to the adventure that has only shortly come to an end:
Only a little while, and Nature, the universal disposer, will change everything you see, and out of their substance will make fresh things and yet again others from theirs, to the perpetual renewing of the world’s youthfulness.
