    Thank you, Farkel, for your post.

    I, likewise, find The Planets so.

    I should have given proper attribution for that comment but could not relocate the source. A writer referred to melodic and rhythmic aspects of Mars, the Bringer of War, as frightening, making this section of Holst's masterpiece pretty darn scary.

    Subjective point of view, to be sure, but I concur. I get a tingle ...

    All the best,

    I peer through my tiny glass darkly and wonder how, for so many years, I survived an overly illuminated existence in the arboretum. So hot, so stifling, so luxuriant my unbridled growth. Shunted away to a darkened hovel -- never did they say why -- I languished by degrees, till, at last, I come to be in this state of mental and physical decay.

    I would leave momentarily but for limbs too weakened to sway e'en by breath of Zephyr himself. Into the earth, whence I came, will I return? I am bound at feet by entwining tendrils that halt all escape.

    Nature, Nature . . . why have you forsaken me?
