Music For When You Feel Pressured

 
Hubble Space Telescope records the beauty surrounding the black hole at the heart of the Circinus Galaxy.

You're not really headed for a black hole--it just feels like it for now. 

Not letting the stress define you--but I do like the little voice saying 'Ay ay ay' in the background. 

Let us take a trip on the solar ship and chill for awhile.

Summer: Vivaldi and Van Gogh


Poppies and Butterflies Van Gogh
The intensity of insects buzzing, the sirocco searing across your face. Flowers bloom then fade daily. Can music sound like the dizzying daze of summer? Vivaldi thought so.

Music For When You're In A Hurry

 
Meyer Friedman defines hurry sickness as “above all, a continuous struggle and unremitting attempt to accomplish or achieve more and more things or participate in more and more events in less and less time, frequently in the face of opposition, real or imagined, from other persons.”

Man, where did I put my keys? Get your shoes on NOW. What do you mean you can't find your backpack--the whole thing? Don't forget your lunch. Oh my gosh, look at the time! Get in the car, we can't be late for school...again.
