  • As I listen to Bach: peaceful
    notes to rest my busy mind,
    gently enter my ears, calming
    my heart: the music carries
    me along energizing
    my heartbeat.

    Cello strings are
    stroked by the musician,
    working so hard to emulate
    his hero, dead but exulted.

    The cello's timbre closest
    of all instruments to that
    of a wide ranging male voice
    comforts my female body.

    These musicians wowed the crowd at Convent Garden market, dancing as well as playing their instruments.
