music, of the classical variety

If your day was anything like my day, you may be overwhelmed right now. You may be tired, or frustrated, or wishing we were just a tad closer to Friday.

For this very reason, I will not wait a moment longer before I share this video with you.

I can't stop watching it. My father decided to take up violin lessons after he saw it. My sister thought of her piano. And I was reminded - yet again - that humanity is, at it's core, good, pure and true.

{Such reminders are often necessary in our current climate of war, hunger, disease, and divisive politics.}

I should also mention straight away that I am not really a classical music fan. With the exception of the movie Fantasia (a true delight!!), toccata and fugue in D minor, and fur elise, classical music has never been my forte. But after watching this video I see how very, very wrong I am. Perhaps we should be exposed to classical music in the streets, rather than in Great Halls? Just a thought.

Without further ado, I give you the best video you will watch all month:

Please please watch it. Travel to On Being to read a bit of commentary for video.
