Totally bummed by a good review

This is so weird. I get a fantastic review and I'm totally devastated by one line in it.

It basically puts Eclipse Court in the same orchestra as Philosopher in Arms and implies that it is secondary... it is the 'harmony' to PA's 'melody'. Secondary theme!

Jesus. It is my own work and it's own 'melody'. It is NOT a lesser reflection or echo to anything else. I'm sure it was meant as descriptive rather than comparative, but it still hurts.

Off to lick my wounds and post the next bit of my work.

Today a friend came over and taught Tristan and I to fire rifles. We tried the .22, the 12 gauge, and the 30.06. The 30.06 has about the same kickback as the shotgun but it feels like it has so much more authority. It feels very different.

Wow. Interesting and a first step toward our FAC's.
