Frédéric Chopin: Nocturne Op. 9, No. 2 in E-flat major

When I listen to this piece I see one of two images. First image is the obvious; spring, soft emotional movement, elegance, desire. Theres a lively flow, life like experience of a heart felt moment. A naive dance of love or an embracing state of full ecstasy. Theres a build of life, strength, power, a spill of doubt, spark of confidence and a finale of acceptance. A beautiful moment  we all know has lived within us at one point or another.

The second image is the lost mind.  Its the mind of the insane, and the acceptance of crazy. Its being high in chaos and lost in wonderland. Its you letting go of control and embracing the emotion. Its when a smile turns to tears and the tears turn to laughter and the laughter makes your eyes close shut. And for that moment of stillness you see the madness. You embrace the crazy. And when you’re ready you breath, and you open your eyes. Then theres a moment of acceptance, the high is over and sanity sinks back in.
