Water continues to be on my mind.
A motif I can't keep from humming and improvising around. Today, a variation on the theme that includes the small sailboat next to me on Lake Union. The sun is out. The wind has lifted a light chop on the water, creating a wondrous squiggle as the mast lets go of its need to reflect itself perfectly.
Speaking of themes and variations, one of the most lovely is this, Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini, and this the 18th variation played by Arthur Rubinstein.
