    • The perils of having a mind, period! I’d go so far as to say that Jung had it right when he urged everyone to confront “the shadow” and experience a transcendent wholeness by examining both light and dark. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks for the recommendations! My mom made me play a lot of classical piano as a kid, so unfortunately, my tastes are a bit tainted. The only classical song I still really enjoy is Pachelbel’s Canon in D and its many variations, haha!
