Actually, it's still the same account, Navneeth. I just wanted to change my "nickname". A few people at work call me by this nickname.

Find your center of self. I keep mine in my head, well behind my eyes, and it's the place I am when I'm watching things on the inside of my forehead. (Yes, I really see them, just not with my eyes.) I don't know where other people keep theirs.
Feel your pulse, and feel your breath. Balance your centers. Listen to the music but keep your attention on balancing your centers.
If there's a proper name for all this, I have no idea what it is. It also works for keeping your sanity when six teenagers are playing video games in the next room.

Vivaldi has a habit of using the same key and rhythms for these works that they sound alike. But for the CD I made, this makes it all the better. I'm hearing mostly 2-4 minute adagios/largos/andantes and because of the uniform key, style and rhythm, the whole CD sounds like a continous epic musical collage which always manages to inspire contemplation and reflection.
So for that, I think it's just impossible to find Vivaldi's slow movements disagreeable. Just like "Mozart is sunshine" (Dvorak says), I find Vivaldi's slow movements a cool breeze.
Well, on that thought, I wanted to ask my fellow BBB members what gives them such moments of peaceful, serene joy and bliss?
