well spoken. I had this conversation with my now wife after I came back from a deployment to Afghanistan as a civilian. As it turns out, I have not deployed to a combat zone since, but I have deployed for disaster responses. We're expecting our first son soon, and we have to think through this again.

Welcome home soldier. Don't wait too long before taking plans off hold (I got engaged about a month of my return :-) )

@Doug When you know that you will be entering chaos (e.g. that is what you do) planning means having a way to take in the chaos and make some sense of it, and to respond and work with it. Not planning has a way of extending the period of chaos, or magnifying its effects on you. Sometimes this has very bad effects. @Walt It is not changes in tempo, structure per se that cause it. There are times in the piece when there were multiple themes/voices going on at once, one of which was the repeating theme. To me, the multiple voices sounded like they were in tension (not quite conflict) while the underlying theme was almost an anchor that I could grab onto and take in everything else around it.
Oh, I love this idea! Now to look at my schedule to see if I can make it to one of these.
