Bach Again

it has always been Bach.

when i could not imagine how to work on the thesis, here in naga, with the noise pollution - the niece doing computer work, the daughter playing games and youtube on her tab, the youngest nephew watching cartoons on tv - the answer has been Bach. Bach and his violin concertos. these are my walls. as now, i take a respite from work on two paragraphs. it has always been Bach. if there should be a person i owe this thesis to other than my two ever-patient supervisors, it will be Bach. he deserves the essential white page, almost of all of it, in Acknowledgments. it is always Bach.
