The above certainly strikes a chord with me!

We've even had a "Silent Symphony"!

The end of a "Ring Cycle". I think Wagner... ...!

We're living in very interesting times! A Cambridge Don in Sufi culture once said to me, "heaven help us from interesting times". Personally, I try to enjoy the present as much as possible, while at the same time looking forward to the point in time when music completely breaks free and hopefully takes each one of us with it.

The apparently crumbling Oracle before us is just an illusion if the "Never Ending Story" is to be believed! Music just needs a 'new name' from beyond the boundary of Fantasia and that boundary we are approaching fairly fast!
