For me, Pachelbel’s Canon represents the height of human elation, while Barber’s Adagio represents the depth of human sorrow. The third movement in Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade is my most enjoyable piece, although Chopin, Ravel, and Debussy are all knocking at that gate.

I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up. View all posts by Henry Barnard
