Serendipity

Yesterday I happened to read this beautiful poem just as the  song below began to play and somehow the two together meshed into something much more powerful and soul stirring. I’ve always loved the REM song but somehow hearing it sung operatically in Italian brought it to another level and because the words were not imediately recognizable I could read the poem instead while listening and this made the poem that much more poignant and beautiful. I encourage you to do the same and also to follow this lovely blog by a sensitive and beautiful soul.

And just for reference, here is the original REM song with its extraordinary video which also coincidently has added words that raise the poignancy of the song.

  1. What a wonderful honor to be part of your vision, Chia! Thank you so much for waving your wand of beauty on my humble poem and creating something gorgeous and unique in this post. I am inspired, touched and grateful. xo p.s. You’ve got me thinking about using the poem and the operatic music for some new choreography :)….
