—those moments that take my breath away.
The second moment came from my reading this morning in Peacock’s Openings, A Daybook of Saints, Sages, Psalms and Prayer Practices. For July 7 he begins with a reference to Beethoven and his ninth symphony which contains “Ode to Joy”. The reading concludes with this sentence: “Give thanks for music in your life. If possible, listen to a recording of Beethoven’s music today.”
Tonight at 7 p.m. Beethoven’s Symphony #9 will be broadcast, and I will be listening. The broadcast was announced days ago, and I have been waiting.
There is no time . . .
And there is no distance between spaces . . .
