You're exchanging trail mix recipes with the Mountaineers Club folks when this mellow, Spanish transcendental lullaby creeps through the club's doorway and swirls around your soul. Instantly, thoughts of Madrid at midnight lighten your spirits. You drop your pen and waterproof notepad, and like a zombie saunter out the door and float into the neighboring Slavonian Hall. Award-winning British classical guitarist Michael Partington strums his acoustic guitar, showcasing his innate rhythmic understanding and sense for tonal color to form some of the most memorable phrasing you have ever heard on the guitar. You slip away into another world. After an hour, you re-enter this world. You wander back to the Mountaineers, but your head is in the clouds capping Mount Teide. You've been Partingtoned, as they say.
