Music Which is Almost a Religious Experience, Pastoral and Fervent...
Sometimes you think you've found beauty.
'I could stare at this piece forever.' 'I will never get sick of that band.' 'That will always be my favorite play.'
But aesthetics, like the tide, is an ever-changing constant.
And sometimes, when the moon gives the ocean just the perfect extra, little gravitational shove, the ocean's essence becomes that much more unbelievable, that much more overwhelming, that much more beautiful.
So, just when you think you've found that beauty, something happens to redefine and reshape your definition of beauty. And like the moon to the ocean, it can be the most outlandish and opposite element added to that beauty that makes your heart smile.
But then you think to yourself 'Of course a serious gravitational pull would enhance the velocity and force of the ocean's movements!' and what you are really thinking is 'Of course adding the eloquence and valor of the French language would enhance the poetry and gravitas of British music!'
Sometimes you really have found beauty:
