Day 314 and I emerge into the 4th suite by J.S. Bach. This time I am in Keystone, Colorado. The snow rises with the mountains as the tops of pine trees wade in white dust. As we drive up the mountain we look ever the road edge only to see the ridges and valleys have disappeared into a foggy chalky abyss. After skiing and snow shoeing we return to our cabin and warm by the fire. After a few hours of friendship and libation I retire to my room and dance to my music. Solitude suits me. As I slide into bed I close my eyes, my body at peace, as the snow falls silently outside my window lulling me to sleep.
Well, Day 311 marks the last day of Yo-Yo Ma’s “Obrigado Brazil”! It was very special for me to revisit this album I’ve had for over a decade. Even more so that it still resonates with me today as an adult. Moving forward I will continue my classical music month with another awesome album by Yo-Yo Ma (I promise I’ll pick a different artist after this!) “J.S. Bach, The 6 Unaccompanied Cello Suites”. Honestly I just feel so fancy dancing naked to music centuries old! #classicalmusicnerd

Favorite Paperie EVER!!
“Alma Brasileira.” This song. On repeat. Just melt away. I thought I was going to get through the rest of the album but this song pulled me into a whirlpool of emotions. I was cast off into a waking dream. The cold left my body, wintered in Denver, and found warmth in the vibrations of the violin strings and piano accompaniment. I’ve never been to Brazil but I was there. Is Obrigado Brazil my new favorite album?! This is definitely a must have! Below you’ll find a video to listen for yourself!
Hey beautiful people! I’d like to share some inspirations that I am using to make this year a great one. First off, check out a real game changer in my everyday life: PASSION PLANNER!
