This Sonata by Beethoven relaxes the soul
and makes one drift away into the passion
That Ludwig was feeling at the time he
composed it. What a truly gifted artist he
was. Ruth Pryor

I love it... Like I'm drifting away, trying to find something. Because that something is a mystery. A mystery that I need to know.

Sadness overflows to a river of lost loves. A toast to love and the passion brings the stars above to comfort our soul this perpetual evening

When you listen to this song, you drop what you are doing. You stop for 6+ minutes and just soak in the subtle arpeggios and the tranquil mood this song brings.

This a beautiful song....ever y t i m e it comes on it makes me stop what ever I am doing so I can pay attention to each emotional note.....It projects you somewhere else...quiet , misty, and cool...maybe sitting by a lake at dawn or wandering the woods. Thats what comes to mind for me.
