Music that will sway you

Last evening we attended the choral concert of a dear friend. After the performance, surrounded by her family and friends, we enjoyed a most hospitable time in her home. Her father sat down at the piano and played, while her mother-in-law sang. It was so beautiful to witness such talent and energy. It brings profound happiness to my heart to be amongst true artists. I think this must have been what the "salons" were really like.

Sometimes there is music that transports us. This is one of those particular pieces.

Have a little 7 minute break. Close your eyes, and breathe. Take the time to be in the moment and be romanticized. Your heart will surely sing.

  1. Thank you my darling. It captured my thoughts perfectly today.

  2. I am very happy that you enjoyed the evening.
    Thank you Leslie. The music was magnificent and brings back very fond memories of my father playing the piano at home.
