This four and a half minute piece, that i first heard in the movie Mary and Max , has since become four and a half minutes of some of the purest joy i have known. Any time it comes on on my playlist, the breathing slows, the heart pulsates just that much slowly to keep time with the crescendos of violins. I cannot pretend to be any sort of expert on music ( like my dear Maggie Curls ), but i do know what moves my soul, at the very least.
It gives me hope every morning, every time i listen to it. “And that’s all i have to say about that.” 🙂
