Hello darlings! It’s almost 2:00 in the morning and I’m still wide awake and on the computer even though I have work in a few hours. Yeah, I probably should sleep a bit between now and then, ya think? The problem is that I’m all backed up – with emails, writing projects, yapping on the phone, mixed in with trying to watch the Olympics, exercising, still haven’t done any shopping for Martha’s Vineyard vacation in August, doing laundry, wasting time on Twitter, and anything else you can name. I can’t time budget, AT ALL. I suck.
I have a 12 hour modeling day scheduled on Monday. I’ve gotta hustle from Glen Cove, Long Island to SoHo in Manhattan. It’s all good. I can handle it – with some SLEEP of course. But before I hit the hay I’d like to present a quick Music Monday. I came across this terrific Degas drawing while perusing around on Tumblr, which is a great place for browsing and discovery by the way. This is Study of a Violinist:
To accompany this image, I present some extraordinary music from an extraordinary composer. Regular Museworthy readers are well aware of my reverence and admiration for this man. It’s Beethoven and his remarkable Late String Quartet compositions, Performed by the Emerson String Quartet, this is No. 14 in C Sharp Minor, Op. 131, allegro molto vivace. Genius, passion, complexity, Beethoven’s Late String Quartets are truly singular works, astonishing in their intricacy, potency, and emotional depth.
Catch you all soon!
