Expression

“It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony.”     - Benjamin Britten

Time has passed. Things have changed. Sometimes, the one thing which was once most important to us. People too, have changed.

Or so they say. People say.

People say that people change. And people believe.

It’s a simple concept. Some call it an illusion, others don’t even bother. People call it an illusion. Some people simply don’t bother.

Some people see. And what they see saddens them.

Some people listen. And in silence, they listen.

Few feel.

To be able to see and listen, that opens the world to people. Feelings can come from these two tiny windows which provide a glimpse to the amazing beauty out there. If people were to stare out into this whole world which they barely know. If everyone were to stop trying to grasp the finest beauties of life.

Instead, open yourselves, come to your senses. It doesn’t take that much, does it?

Personal note: I’m extremely sorry for the hiatus. Have had a crazy start to the year, and am currently involved in two major projects. Shall be talking about them when the time is right. Cheers!
