I am, as I type these words, melting into his Symphony #1.–KRT

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

God of beauty,

when we melt into a symphony,

or an aria

or a concerto,

thank you.

When music transports us positively,

thank you.

When we find and experience beauty in music,

thank you.

Amen.
