     Georg sat down with a thump. He
flipped settings on his controls
to assure his workstation would
continue to record everything.
     Then he attacked.
     The piece slammed into place from
beginning to end in one triumphant
take. It was loud, aggressive, unapologetically tonal, yet devoid of any central melody line. Always it threatened to spiral out of control. The composer, having risked the edge, proved it would not.
     After silent moments, he stirred and walked to the middle of the salon where Lin, now standing, offered her presence. They held each other’s eyes.
     “This was the moment of birth?” she asked.
     “Yes.”
     “I came early on purpose, looking for you off-balance. I was willing to be told to come back later. I hope you will pardon. I did not expect to see this.”
     “It was a close call. If you’d made a sound or movement to disturb me, you’d have been shown the door.”
     “I know.”
