I went to the ballet this week, and to a classical guitar concert last week. I'd forgotten how lovely it is to engage with art like that, how it feeds the soul in a different way than watching it online. Live art is beautiful. I have a degree in piano performance (with minors in singing and conducting). Yeah, I know — what??? It seems like a lifetime ago, but I used to participate in art regularly.
April is National Poetry Month, and I love poetry, so I thought I'd share some favourites over the next few weeks. I might even, along with the text of the poem, record a short video of myself reading the poem. It's still on a screen, but it's more interactive than simply reading the words. I hope that you enjoy these moments of art and reflection.
