Nope, am not in Rome. Nor am Raven. Haven’t been to Italy since 90s..before our four brood born. A quick memory pops to mind of Chato and me on waterbus..figuring out our ride. Did my LOVE of Italian music (libretto) translate correctly to vaporetto stop in Venice?!
I don’t speak Italian…IF You call “singing” …aka cat sCrEeChInG to Andrea Bocelli…language lessons?!…lol:) SURE! we did manage to navigate successfully. Aka jump on and off okay to get some good gelato. (Have a funny photo somewhere (lost in the cyclone of children rummaging through old albums) of me enJOYing; IF find may future upload here.)
My/any (self-)study of Italian and school music stunted…sacrificed for other reasons/pursuits. (no regrets; Wish i could sing…Opera;) or just carry a non-nasally tune.)
My music appreciation continues to flourish, however.
God, i have so much to learn!
I don’t indulge it (music). (Though, may be hard to defend considering most of my blogs include selections that speak to/sing to/touch me/my heart/my mind…usually deeply. And somehow (Thank God) fit/harmonize with these writings.) I have to keep music in its place or it would/could consume…capacity to overtake me and emotionally drown me like Tsunami.
(which is why “any” selections tip on the positive; mostly.)
Will Always LOVE MUSIC..but i don’t live for music. (My life is not dedicated/devoted to it. (Am dedicated to Yahweh.)) Though it helps me live. One description of Music: a beautiful language–a Divine Yahweh Gift–for which i seek fluency gratefully & humbly; i hope.
(It’s strange..when “listening” (not playing) to intense strings/violin; it actually does something to my brain; i f~e~e~l the vibrations sensations; literally. (Yeah, she’s a strange one!))
I love “his” Nessun Dorma (Bocelli)..preferred over Pavarotti’s.
My music musings…an aside/an introduction? really!…see what i mean??? about it taking over…primarily wanted to share this “brief” video intro to book of Romans.
Peace & Pleasantness & Good/Transformative Music to YOU:)
