Flying High

March 8, 2009 at 10:53 AM

I just had a fantastic experience. I felt like an eagle with long wings soaring in an updraft. I felt that way even during the Kyrie Elaison, which I didn't expect to make me feel happy. It was Mozart. Mozart's Requiem.

The orchestra was small and the chorus large. At times, I watched their interactions. I couldn't do that for long, though. The music picked me up and carried me away on high. I couldn't understand how one man could create such beauty. All too soon came the strong, stolid Amen.

There is a place deep inside us that only music can touch. It is a place where we can connect to the best parts of ourselves, to other people, to Nature, and to a Transcendant Power. I had a wonderful trip there tonight.
