I needed a dose of this today

Sometimes I need help in putting aside one thing and taking up the next. 
In moving on. 
In entering the now. 
In forgetting what is behind, pressing towards the goal and running.
Whatever metaphor you want to use. 

Today what I needed came with this : Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances for two pianos.

I hoped it would. 
I remember the first time I heard this piece. 
Live, in a free concert in Cardiff, played by Richard Mahon and Martin Jones-Piano. 
The TENSION at the beginning of the piece, the RESOLUTION at about minute 10.

Sheer healing musical medicine. I didn't watch the video. I listened while reading something helpful.
