Sonata #2, Allegro

I'd already seen this Bach earlier today, when the bare branches made lines on the snow in front of me, and the shadows echoed their form. Then the black notes suddenly took flight as ravens, circling, toying playfully with each other, being supported by only air.

Emily - what a wonderful image!  It gives me a whole new take on that Bach.

Ah, it does my soul good to see your Alaska snow decorated with twiggy shadows!

Thank you!  Unfortunately, this photo was pulled from the archives, and our current snow depth is actually much more shallow.  Eh, typical November.  We always get a cold snap of record-breaking cold followed by a warm rainy spell.  The result is a useless glaze, not unlike frosted miniwheats.
