A harp is a stringed instrument. Strings are strung by stretching them such that, when plucked, they sound in accord with the other strings. When not in accord, the sound stretches in something more like tension in the sense of nervous strain.
An analogue of this can be found in recorded music. The ubiquitous MP3 audio format actually makes the brain work very hard to fill in all the missing musical information. To listen to MP3s is a tiring experience resulting in tension. This is one reason why the adherents to vinyl recordings continue to grow and flourish. The musical grooves, both those etched in vinyl and those of the music itself, produce angelic sound quality.
New Moon today seems to be asking us to get into the groove, release over-stretched tension and enjoy. At first there may be some discomfort, however, the discovery that your instrument… your physical being and you, your sense of identity… is slightly out of tune is good news. Gives us something to work, or shall we say, play on.
