Sometimes it's the little luxuries that really help me get by.
For example, I bought myself a nice set of 3 CD's for $14 called "Great Classics for Reading." It's not highbrow at all or diverse. There's nothing really edgy as far as classical music goes. It doesn't have a lot of "Sturm und Drang," which I usually like in my classical.
And yet, it's a really lovely CD to listen to while working. Very calming, a little energy, and a very nice mix.
As classical CD collections go, it's a bouquet of daffodils: warm, friendly, a little elegant, and just puts you in a nice mood.
