    This is so pretty. I have only heard of Ravel because he is mentioned in an episode of “MASH”. This totally fits the way I am feeling today.

    Oh my gosh!
    I don’t know the piece – I confess to know little to no classical music – but the pick and your description match perfectly – and are so soulful and mournful. This reminds me a little of my So Far Away – but it more refined and expressive. This is gorgeous!

    thanks Mary- the song was soulful and mournful- you gave me the words I was looking for- or at least that is how the song hit me. You could probably find it on youtube.

    I agree with Mary, I don’t know the song but the pick seems to fit the title very well. Beautiful.

    I know a few of Ravel’s pieces, but I’ve not heard this one. It’s an absolutely stunning pick though, instant favorite.

    although I’m also not familiar with this piece of music, what a mournful combo of colors and beads you have here,very striking with black and silver!!!

    Beautiful and sad, clear and elegant, royal and yet humanly mournful. It looks like a white wolf’s cry under a full moon at midnight. Or an unseen black leopard’s keening for her lost cub in the depths of the night jungle. I have never heard the song but looking at this pick I can just see an Elven princess, white as the marble she is laid out on, under the cold, black starless sky.
