The Bells

Thinking back there are three main events that commenced the holiday season and initiated my spirit: An antique horse parade, my Grandma’s Kris Kringle Kickoff, and the school concert.  While all three would be nice to enjoy, this year (after a couple of years without) I made it to a holiday concert.

I was not prepared for the  energy that the orchestra and choir  gave me.  Since I now live in a city with an orchestra in the International Top Ten, I also underestimated the level of skill that many community members have.  As the heart and soul was belted out, I was electrified by the fiddle playing star.  The moment of forgetting all sense but hearing and being shaken by the unbelievable beauty.

The coming together of so many people just to listen, enjoy and kick off the holiday season so collectively–sublime.
