In attempt to dash off my bad feelings of late I’m gona be uploading one thing a day that I’m grateful for and acknowledge as Blessing in my life.
Just thought I’d give you the head up cause I’m pretty sure my insta and tumblr are interlaced so you’ll see the pictures.
Today’s was the opera, I went to a free performance of what reminded me of mimi’s story line in rent by the royal british opera. I’m not sure what it was called.
It was…interesting. I think I’d like it if I didn’t understand what they were saying. Most opera I’ve liked is Italian and female vocals. So I think it being in English is what bored me a little.
But blessed non the less, as some people are never exposed to such culture. My English teacher died last year, and he told me he got tickets to his first classical music concert for his birthday and he didn’t want to go that Thursday.
On Friday he told me how happy he was that he’d finally gone and how wrong he’d been about the culture and how purely beautiful it was and how it made him cry and how nice champagne was. (Another thing he labeled as elitist and would have nothing to do with)
He died very shortly afterwards. A week if that.
Can you imagine if he hadn’t gotten those tickets for his birthday?
He would have died never tasting champagne
Or having music resinate with him.
And it’s just something I remember striking me when I got the news of his death.
I can’t remember what my point was but you guys should join me in trying to be as open and grateful to experience. Just every day say try to take a second to think about how nice it was to have that little something. Having the observation to see beautiful flowers
having the awareness to know about a favourite song or artist.
And just consider how it’s enriched you as a person.
