So this morning seems like the perfect occasion to take a little breather on the metaphorical side. Feast your eyes and ears on young Norwegian classical musician Tine Thing Helseth (pronounced tin-eh ting hel-set) as she cooly and flawlessly delivers Hummel's high energy 1804 trumpet concerto in the video below.
Effortlessness personified. Effective wind power, I suppose. It's the sort of energy-in and energy-out equation we need in modern electricity generation and in locomotion.
Apologies to anyone who thinks we've just, er, wasted our energy and used our time inefficiently with this slight diversion. We'll be back to splitting atoms and that sort of thing by tomorrow.
