The Alluring Air

I've been taken by a sound. It stirred deep inside me and latched onto me. It speaks of something almost lost. Something quiet. Something sensual, tantilizing and alluring. It's roots are in Zen Buddhism, but those roots have all but severed now. I speak of the Japanese shakuhachi. For 22 years I've been seeking the purity in its sound and now I would like to write about it. I welcome any comments.
