isn’t it SUBLIME?

it’s a piece by Arvo Pärt

turn off the lights – leaving just the reading lamp by your chair – light a gardenia candle – and close your eyes (that’s what we’re doing right after we t y p e t h i s l i n e).

*pauses*

a little more Arvo?

yes.

Arvo Pärt, Roland Barthes and (shortly) Cahiers du Cinema?

*pauseforeffect*
