Expostulation

I Watched This

I think it is one of the things which is adding into my (to me) odd mood this season. I keep thinking, as these things accumulate, that this is what it was like for my parents. Lots of things happen, accumulate as memories, and then when various events come around, regular annual events, all of these memories come along with them. Some are happy, some are sad, some are mostly neutral, and all of them flavour the event.

This one, this is one of the happier ones for me. I watched this, listened to the reading, and felt wonderful. Not, mind you, particularly from a religious sense, but from humankind accomplishments, and the sheer artistry of it.
