This year I have decided I need more music in my days. It doesn’t have to be intrusive. Just something nice going on in the background to lift the morning mood, or add to the afternoon lull.
Classical music is not generally what I turn to, mainly because being a word-girl, I love a clever lyric; something I can sing along to. But I rediscovered a Chopin CD that my mum gave me when I was in high-school, and I am absolutely enchanted.
I am not a music scholar, so I can not tell you in technical terms which parts of these musical pieces is capturing me so, or why these particular combinations of notes work so beautifully.
But I can tell you when I listen to these pieces I feel moved.
When I listen to this music I am in awe of the fact it was created by a human being. It existed in them, and they found a way to unlock that beauty and share it with the world.
And when I listen to this music I feel hope. For myself, for human beings, and for the world.
And I quite enjoy inviting that hope into my day.
Do you like classical music?
Do you have a favourite piece or composer?
Joining in with Maxabella for 52 Weeks of Grateful. It’s quite lovely over there. You should take a look!
