Post something that soothes your soul, damn it !

It could be music, poetry, a picture, an article, a type of food, or anything that lifts your spirits.

The following is probably one of the most beautiful and evocative movie scores I have ever heard, though I'm not a fan of this genre of movie.  I don't think it garnered an Oscar in this year, which is perplexing, but it is amazing to me nonetheless.

The Time Machine Incarnate, the ever upward lift of the plane of the present.

In the year 2525, osmosis expanding outward, metabolism shrinking inward, and the structural network steadily growing toward full circle.

Tres drole.  Mais les notre reves sont acceptables.

Since we've dabbled in French, how about "l'Acadie," that being Acadia National Park in Maine, especially at peak fall color.  I've yet to go.  Check out the colors:

chatter of clouds

what makes me most at peace:

 a midnight swim. because its summer and very hot now. the sea water is warm and its really saltier than the mediterranean here so its even easier to float with little effort. i can then put my hands behind my head and look up at the moon. but best when i'm underneath. thats when i'm most content.

for the outer shells of the soul:

film wise, without a doubt Tarkovsky's The Mirror. many films i like and many more i don't - but without a doubt, thats the only one i have  sincere affection for.

music wise, here i am listening to Biber's passacaglia. There is something both soothing and compelling about the repetition of the descending tetrachord and variations built thereon. soul clipping and soul soothing in one. i hope to be able to play it one day.

poetry...i think the closest to my sensibility are Ted hughes and  Lorca. the first fills my mouth  and the second my spirit. there are quite a few others, like that brilliant chiaroscurist of a poet emily dickinson, but they are not as near.  

but i don't read poetry as much and i don't listen to quite as much music nowadays. i found that the act of consumption in itself does not give me peace of mind, once i became aware of the act of consumption. i wonder if i'm prone to cultural anorexia.
