I realized I forgot to tell you how the website got its name. Let’s fix that.
I was talking with someone about music, and they said, “You know, it seemed like you were only casually interested, and bam! suddenly Schubert. It’s like you catapulted into classical music.”
I liked the image, it fit me. It’s not uncharacteristic for me to become interested in something and become rather absorbed in it. My approach is enthusiastic, but not always systematic. There can be a slightly-out-of-control element to it, just like a catapult. And while I have an idea of where I want to go, I’m never quite sure which path I’ll take, or where I’ll end up. Ah, but getting there is wonderful! Which leads me to my Throwback Thursday Quote of the Week, up next.
Oh, and the music over the careening stick figure is the first vocal line from Schubert’s Winterreise.
