To clarify: the title is excerpted from Act 1 of Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost. The full quote goes:
"Light, seeking light, doth light of light beguile;
So ere you find where light in darkness lies,
Your light grows dark by losing of your eyes."
It's a warning against spending too much of your life in scholarly pursuits.

Hewitt at the Shriver
We went to a concert this afternoon at Shriver Hall. The artist was Angela Hewitt, widely considered to be the foremost living interpreter of Bach. It was an amazing performance. She started with Couperin, then Bach's fifth "French Suite" and the first four parts of "The Art of the Fugue", then a Ravel take on Couperin, the highpoint of the program.
