Things I Love: Breathless Beauty

August 24, 2014

What is the thing that makes your heart stop, startled by beauty?

Today it was the chorus entering boldly at the end of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9.  I held my breath through several measures unable to do anything except to let the music flood through me.

Yesterday it was the red leaves shouting amongst all of the green.

If not Beethoven, then what? What brings quiet joy that fills your eyes with tears and your heart with happiness?
