Distant echoes, the vast roof overhead - I feel a slight chill and sense of awe when I walk into a cathedral. I get the same feeling of immensity when I listen to Bach’s sixth cello suite, a work the great Russian cellist Mstislav Rostropovich called “a symphony for solo cello.”

I love winter: the low afternoon sun, footsteps crunching on new snow, huddling in bed under a comforter, that unusual pink night sky that signals snow.
