I call architecture frozen music. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale.” (Hans Christian Andersen)
Recently, in Montreal, I was kindly invited to a rehearsal of Händel’s Triumph of Time and Truth. Sitting near the centre of a beautiful chapel, surrounded by three choirs (one in front, and one on each side) I felt the chorus line ” Time is supreme, Time is a mighty pow’r!” not only wash over me, but reverberating deep in my soul.
After what was a powerful experience, this notion of time did not leave me for days. Is it really, I was asking myself? Supreme, a mighty power? Or is it just a social construct to help us understand this world? Einstein proposed about 100 years ago that time and space are not really constant.
“The distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.” Einstein quote
If you were born without wings, do nothing to prevent them from growing. –Coco Chanel
Hello, fellow travelers and friends,
Fellow blogger Polianthus inspired me to partake in his monthly fountain challenge. After all, what’s not to love about fountains? I even have one in my backyard. Although it doesn’t look anything like this…
… it has become a gathering place for all types of birds and a “watering spot” for cats and racoons. While I enjoy the sounds of water falling, I return to the fountains of Rome.
Ciao – TT
