This week I have been unwell; to the level that after class on Friday I went home. Reviewing my music I found this. The “Ode to Joy”; beauty, passion, joy. What is more; humans working together to build; beauty, passion and joy. The story the we exist solely to compete and consume is so profoundly simplified that I despair for us.
I have looked before but have never found a full concert of the original 9th Symphony. This is simply magical. I understand why people credit this music with changing their lives. Remember to look after yourself and each other.
