A wife goes mad on the night of her marriage and her husband is left alone in an empty house. Filled with despair and longing, he sets out on a dream-filled voyage to find her.

This text was written while listening to the first three minutes of Beethoven's Symphony No.7 in A major op.92 - II, Allegretto. In each section you will find a link to the track. Have a listen and let me know if you can hear the track in the text.

Love the brevity; the sparse, felt despair. And the music is just so perfect. I can read this page over and over just for that.

I have waited too long to read an opening like this. This is good.

You gained my interest in this first part. I want to read on. Your writing is effective in creating a surreal atmosphere for the story.

This is very intriguing and unusual. I like how you portrayed his madness by isolating himself from the world, waiting for his wife to come back.
