Patience is a Virtue

Or so they say.

Of course, they also say that you only get one chance to make a first impression.

I tend to be a very patient person. Sometimes to my own detriment. Sometimes I should really be less patient. But usually I find that patience works to my (and others’) benefit. Like it did today.

Today I experienced the very interesting combination of patience working out for the best and a potentially botched first impression recovering remarkably well.

Well played, universe.

As an avid reader of science fiction, I found this story to be fascinating. As a musician, I found it to be intriguing, thought-provoking, and inspiring. When I’ve encountered music in science fiction before, it often feels like an afterthought, not so in this case. Rusch weaves music into this world and breathes life into it in a way that I’ve never encountered. Delightful.
