a moment of midday serenity

I am listening to Shira Kammen’s “Downstream,” a medley of three waltzes that flows from a peaceful brook into crashing rapids.


I am watching the counter on the Humble Freedom Bundle tick ever towards three million dollars donated, which will mark ten times what the Humble Store said it’d match donations up to.

Kammen’s work is known to puzzle game enthusiasts because it was featured in “Braid,” a devilishly tricky 2008 game by Jonathan Blow, who more recently developed “The Witness,” which is I believe the only game in the Bundle I cannot play on Mac.  He chose not to include any music in “The Witness,” saying it would be a “layer of stuff that works against the game.
