Feeling a bit anxious and with some manic energy, I proceeded to reorganize all the two closets in my bedroom to try to put my clothes in better order and reduce chaos. This involved a good deal of cleaning also. I put on the four Brahms Symphonies -- perhaps trying to torture myself subconsciously -- while I worked. I am pleased with the results: the closets look great, and I can find all my clothes now. But all four Brahms Symphonies in one hearing is too too much. Brahms never could get his music out of the dark, even though there are some moments where it seems he might; it always comes back to this dark-hued autumnal state. Perfect for today's weather, though.
