When skies are gray

Do you sometimes have rain in your heart?  Are the clouds dull and gray?  Does the sound of good cheer grate at your ears like so many nails across a chalkboard?  Then the last thing you want to hear is some upbeat jerk like Mozart or Mendelssohn dancing through some arpeggios all carefree and gay.  Funny thing that classical music, it is sometimes hard to find a soundtrack to gray skies even though there is a lot of it.  Here is a something for your overcast soul:  Myaskovsky.  Ah those Russians, they know what sorrow sounds like.  Delve into the string quartet in D minor...

Maybe today is a bad day to be alive?  Thank God they aren't all breezy lightweights.
