Pretty MP3

Wow. Gabe did something really cool. He took my voice post from a couple of days ago and put it to music. It's amazing how something can go from, "Great text, not a bad reading, just a couple of mistakes," to "How very lovely" with just some extra stuff edited in.

I uploaded it and everything, because it's worth sharing. I've listened to this a dozen times, which may be conceited, but honestly it's not about me. It's about the sum of the quote (Hesse is a fascinating author) and the music (do you have an attribution Gabe?), plus I happen to be reading it.

It comes together well, lovely and poignant.
