jackjanderson: (Han Solo)
Day 10 - A song that makes you sad:

Ludwig Van Beethoven - Piano Sonata No. 14 in C♯ minor "Quasi una fantasia", Op. 27, No. 2, popularly known as the Moonlight Sonata.

There's something very evocative, very austere about the piece, it's almost funereal yet beautiful. Imagine listening to it, on a stormy sunday afternoon, when it's dark and the sky is only lit by lightning. A drink in your hand and a book. Beautiful.

Or a film noir seduction followed by death.

About Me

I'm Jack, a recent retiree looking for a new hobby. Apparently 'annoying my girlfriend' isn't the best use of my days. Her opinion, not mine

I'm a life-long science-fiction and superheroes fan, and a voracious reader. I enjoy movies, fishing, astronomy, and gardening.

I live in Wales with my wife, our girlfriend and an ever growing collection of four-legged friends.
