And I think I need to take a few days forcing my eyes away from the things that make channel my inner Fury– and meditate instead on moments of beauty, moments of grace, and moments of the friggin cool.
This, for example:
Gorgeous. With that wicked sting at the end. I had to watch it several times in a row to catch that subtle and sly pull from image to image to image.
And this (because Spring eludes us still. And because I love Vivaldi – and yes, I know he’s pedestrian and overplayed, but don’t hate on the redheaded priest! I still like him. So sue me.)
And of course there’s this, which was one of the most heartbreaking things I’ve ever seen on Youtube:
Which means I must now thank Youtube for bringing me out of my funk yesterday and awaking my heart to art and beauty and sand.

I have a thing for sand animation. I had seen that last one before, the heartbreaking one, and loved, loved, loved it. So amazing to watch it done like that. And as to Vivaldi, I love him too. Didn’t know he was pedestrian or a redheaded priest.
Thanks for all the vids.
When your friends with people who majored in music and have pursued careers in music, you pick up on their Vivaldi-annoyances. But honestly, I don’t care if it’s the classical music of choice for high-end malls. I still like The Four Seasons. So there. 😉
Oh, and here’s Vivaldi’s wiki page. Pretty interesting dude. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_Vivaldi
You rock…I have been enjoying your blog incognito for a while -but am a fan!
Check out sand animation to a schubert song -the erlking or erlkonig. It is pretty wonderful stuff. Thanks for sharing the others.
Thanks, Martha! I’ll definitely look that up!
Oh, and clicked on your website and I LOVE it that you’re an opera singer! I dabbled a bit in the vocal training, but was seduced away by fiction 😉 But many of my compatriots and fellow singers have gone on to be professionals. There are few art forms that I enjoy more than opera – especially if I have a friend on stage.
