O esoterica

I'm gritting my teeth to dive into some unpleasant work today.  I survived my yoga session this morning, I'm showered and shaved, and halfway through my cinnamon-laced coffee.  Time to get some stuff done, even if I'd rather avoid all of it.

For reasons beyond my understanding, such tasks can go well with strange and esoteric music.  For instance, an electronica-laden arrangement of Hildegard von Bingen.

  1. Cinnamon also makes most things better... cinnamon in hot cocoa is delicious, too.

  2. This is a little uncanny: I was just thinking about a *different* electronica-laden version of Hildegard that I loved in the mid-90s and considering buying it in non-cassette form. I mean, I was JUST thinking about this. Clearly I must go buy me some Hildegard.

    1. It's a sign for sure. That Bingen lady must have some powerful mojo.

  3. Cinnamon coffee? Interesting. What type of music is best for coming-down-with-a-cold-and-no-energy-to-grade?

    2. How did I not know about this awesomeness? It is perfect for grading (and cooking) bliss!
