>my beloved wife and daughter
Hm? Sorry if it's rude for asking, and you can ignore this question if you want, but are they one and the same or are they different people? Just curious because I don't recall you bringing up a daughter before.
Thank you for the suggestion! New stuff is indeed what I'm looking for. The site runs really slowly (it might just be me) but I'm already seeing some interesting recommendations. I have had your problem happen to me too in the past; while ambient isn't my favorite genre, I do like it quite a lot, although (at the moment) I mainly listen to post-rock and drone, and am extremely fond of minimalism for nostalgic reasons (classical and otherwise). But, as you probably know, repetition and same-y is a problem in those genres too as they often overlap. (I should probably take this to /mp3/, whoops.)
And, sorry if this sounds corny but I really am glad to read your posts again. It's very clear to me how much you love your dearest and reading your posts usually brings a smile to my face. This goes to pretty much all the other regulars too. I'm kind of shy about saying it every time but there are so many times when I really like a post, or can tell how much an anon loves their dearest, and it makes me happy. I know a lot of us struggle too so it's nice when people post when they are most passionate.
I'm kind of sick so I hope that my post makes sense and doesn't sound weird.
