Serene intimacy

In my constant quest of art feeding my heart, this appeared as a poignant contemplation of how life brings souls together.. The music by Max Richter emphasizes all the movements’ emotions. Tenderness meets hope, fervor meets deference, freedom meets dedication…

This reminded me of this beautiful passage from an old favorite of mine: Letters to a young poet, by Rainer Maria Rilke.

… and this more authentic love will be evident in the utterly considerate, gentle and clear manner of its binding and releasing. It will resemble what we now struggle to prepare…… I hold this to be the highest task for a bond between two human beings: the love that consists of two solitudes which border, protect, and greet each other.”
