the morning breaks

I've listened to Maurice Ravel's Pavane pour une Infante defunte (Pavane for a dead princess) several times in the few days following the deaths my 102-year-old grandmother-in-law and my sweet 16-year-old niece, her great granddaughter. Grandma's death was long anticipated. My niece's was not. What a contrast in age and in the anticipation of what the earthly future would be for each of these noble women.
