saddest part of all the movie :(
It doesn’t snow in Vancouver. It doesn’t get to minus 20 with only 5 hours of daylight. I don’t have many friends who share my passion for music. My life is different. Now, it rains and I run/bike/hike. I don’t even recognize myself.
Can I be forgiven then for missing someone who sees the joy that used to be in me? Can I be forgiven for, after a decade, being connected?
What makes life incredibly tender is that people leave an impression on us. There are so many conversations that I wish we could have. I wish that I could aks your opinion on so many topics.
I hope that life deals us some kinder luck but if it doesn’t I choose to smile. I choose to not regret and I choose to look firmly in the face of reality and look forward while appreciating where I’ve come from.
Just when I thought I was fully an adult, the summer in Montreal happened and lone behold, there was more growing up to do. I’ve had to be patient, responsible, self-disciplined, and mature about everything that happened.
Through the grace of God, I can look back and say that I’ve behaved admirably. I can honestly say I’ve entered a whole new world - one that I am not quite sure I was ready for. Experience is the greatest teacher.
I love, love, love dark and stormy nights when I get to curl up at home with Beethoven, a hot cup of tea, and my dreams.
I wouldn’t mind if it rained forever.
Baby Got Bach
When asked to name their favorite composer, Philharmonic musicians invariably answer, “Bach.”
“For me he’s up there pretty close to God.” — Robert Botti, oboe
“To me, his music inhabits a different sphere from all other composers.” — Marc Ginsberg, Principal, Second Violin Group
“As Mahler said: ‘In Bach, all the seeds of music are found, as the world is contained in God.’” — Peter Kenote, viola
“Mozart and Bach — elegant, simple, and just heavenly!” — Michelle Kim, Assistant Concertmaster
Their big love will make for a passionate month this season when the Philharmonic presents The Bach Variations: A Philharmonic Festival.
Everybody out of the water.
most significant thing i’ve created in my lifetime.
