Vivaldi, Happy birtday
Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" at least one of them, at one point or another in their lives.
Vivaldi has a way of cutting to the chase, while at the same time embellishing the details of nature and life, details that are both obvious and simple, and therefore, at least in modern times, tend to be overlooked. One can't help but be moved emotionally, mentally, spiritually. There is something grounding about his music as well as something that releases one's heart and inner inhibitions. His music is refined yet raw, raw in the sense that it speaks to the centre of one's being. It is methodical while at the same time fancy free. Vivaldi's music tugs at the heartstrings of even the manliest bear.
Happy birthday, Vivaldi. Cheers to you. *clink-clink*
