..."We were transported by that music in an ethereal way that later we would try to explain and couldn't. But it was the first time I really felt what I had long understood: that something could be extremely beautiful and intensely painful at the same time."
from THE SWAN HOUSE by Elizabeth Musser
if that sentence doesn't explain the way i feel about music, then *nothing* does......
now that i think about it.....it explains the way i feel about a LOT of things.
thanks ms. musser, for your beautiful book.
