Oh man.
I started crying at about the two minute mark and just could not help myself.
So beautiful.
Tears of joy (and hope) can be so refreshing, so invigorating.

Thank you Ed.

Nice to be reminded how truly powerful art can be on an emotional level. I find myself too caught up in the intellectual aspects sometimes. Thank you again for the gift.

It’s not about facts, it’s about feelings. It’s about remembering feelings and happiness. A definition of art is that it makes concrete our most subtle emotions. I think the highest form of art is music. It’s the most abstract of all art expression.

The Baby Grackle I rescued from the supermarket parking lot died monday night. why would a silly little bird make me feel love again?

The Children in the flash mob will always remember their experience.

Thank you Ed! Very moving and uplifting. My daughter's violin teacher e-mailed me the welcome address of Karl Paulnack at the Boston Conservatory. Long, but well worth the read...two quotes from it are below and his full speech is at:
http://www.bostonconservatory.edu/music/karl-paulnack-welcome-address
"... I have come to understand that music is not part of "arts and entertainment" as the newspaper section would have us believe. It's not a luxury, a lavish thing that we fund from leftovers of our budgets, not a plaything or an amusement or a pass time. Music is a basic need of human survival. Music is one of the ways we make sense of our lives, one of the ways in which we express feelings when we have no words, a way for us to understand things with our hearts when we can't with our minds. "
"Music allows us to move around those big invisible pieces of ourselves and rearrange our insides so that we can express what we feel even when we can't talk about it. "
And @ Fish, if you read it, he talks about why we cry when we hear music like this...!
