I am currently on my computer checking my e-mails and finishing up some Sunday business before I head into the week and I have currently playing on my itunes my "classical" mix which really should be categorized as orchestral ~some of it is isn't very classic but it is all orchestral. I love listening to classical music on Sundays it is an odd habit that my dad lovingly bestowed upon us children. "Sundays are for classical music" and that is what played on the stereo system in the house on Sunday ~mainly it was Minnesota Public Radio Sunday Music Concert Hall and sometimes it was an album. I have a love of orchestral music ~something I thought all people had until I was 17 when I was totally gobsmacked to find out my friend Joel thought it was total rubbish and never listened to it ~my response was "What do you listen to on Sunday?"
I can't name a single composer listening to their work outside of Aaron Copland my favorite ~I know I really enjoy Russian composers. I miss not going to the symphony every month like I did all through High School ~it was where I volunteered to have perfectly lovely college applications. And just like my sister Noellie I miss that sunny spot on the carpet that had its own smell and was lovely and warm where the sun shone down on it every Sunday afternoon where you would read the funnies and listen to classical music because that's what Sundays were for.
