At my advanced age (43……) I've decided that, as long as you've got food on the table and a roof over your head, all that really matters in life are (1) love; and (2) art.
I'm a chartist, not an artist, but I appreciate the art of others – especially music. I've shown a version of this clip before – the finale of Fidelio – but I urge you to fire it up and even just listen to it in the background while you do whatever-it-is that you do in the afternoon. It's good for your soul. Thank you, LVB!
