Mellifluous Adagios

A very dear friend died this morning.  He was a brilliant scientist and a lover of the arts.  I am richer for our time together.

We spent some great times talking about music.  He fancied Cat Stevens, Django Reinhardt, and a wide range of classical music.  When he rocked out, it was to The Rolling Stones.

He described his quest in life as "seeking out mellifluous adagios."  I have come to love that phrase.

Sweet-sounding, slowly played music is a great metaphor for the beauty in life.  My dear friend was one who truly appreciated those moments.  He will be missed.

  2. Slow and sweet as most of the greatest moments of our lives come to us. At least that is the way of the most memorable ones. May his memory be rekindled with each mellifluous adagio that rounds your way. Slowly sweet are the moments, and yet we so often miss there true rhythm.

    1. Thanks JB. Spent last night sitting outside, listening to a symphony of frogs, thinking about this. Oh yeah, I drank some wine too.
