    Emotion Without Words

    Music in one of its finer forms. Beautiful, simple yet intricately complex, and such a conveyor of emotion that certain pieces were banned long ago for fear of inciting unsolicited rushes of feelings that weren't exactly prudent for the time. It soothes me, and it moves me.

    The song Declaration of Love Alfred Schnittke

    some may say is a little sadder than it needs to be for a declaration of love but I think it very accurately portrays how it feels. It reminds more of an unrequited love, that you are confessing. It hurts but there are bits of happiness that you were able to tell the one you...

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Piano Concerto No. 21

    Some nights, I feel so relaxed and peaceful, as if nothing could bother me in the entire world.  I pour a glass of Sangiovese and I turn on music like this and begin to dream about another time. ~Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 performed by Netherlands Chamber Orchestra
