Writing allows me to hone in on what I really mean, instead of avoiding it.

Mi Mancherai Video
I have been doing some figure drawings this morning and listening to music. I picked Josh Groban and specifically "Mi Mancherai". The song brought tears to my eyes and I had to stop drawing. Yes, the song is beautiful, but what tugs at my heart and makes me want to cry is seeing the performance. (Thanks to Dave the Painting Guy for the link) There is something about watching people do what they have a passion for that strikes me at the deepest heart level. Watching the passion in Lucia Micarelli's and Josh's faces gives a deeper and more intense meaning to the song. Now I can carry the video of their performance in my mind and "watch" it whenever I listen. Do you have something that strikes at your heart? I'd really like to hear about it.
