When things get tough one of our strongest reactions is that to cling onto something of the past. Yearning for something that used to bring warmth and smiles becomes our comfort. With it inevitable perhaps that tinge of frustration of something that might be gone forever?
Yearning for something just out of reach is bread and butter of creative artists. Knowing it can never be achieved, that the horizon moves away from us the closer we think we approach it, also gives that tinge of frustration.
Why is it so often that the comforting is the impossible? Y - illustrated with this Menuet from #Ravel - is for yearning.
