Soothing or soul-crushing? Big Grin I enjoyed the video, but I had to watch it on mute. As soon as I heard the first few notes of Clair de Lune, I had to turn off my speakers. When I was in France, Clair de Lune was banned from the airwaves in 1965 because the suicide rate spiked whenever it was played on the radio. The ban didn't last long because it was protested vigorously, but I can understand the reason for it. I think it's one of the most depressing pieces of music in existence.

That's really interesting to hear about a song being linked to suicide. I could barely hear the music...but I liked it with the roses. Then I went to youtube...and the first few notes filled me with despair. Seriously. How strange. I had to shut it off too.

The roses were beyond beautiful!!!! Thanks for the link, Mustbnuts.

I loved the music but I understand how music can be associated with dark thoughts. Not many Australians can listen to Albinoni's Adagio in G minor without sobbing because it is always linked to the movie Gallipoli that is shown at least twice a year on Anzac Day and Remembrance Day. My chest gets tight just at the first few notes.

Yes, Lola, that's another one. I also can't bear to listen to that one. It brings back everything I felt when I saw Gallipoli.

Interesting, it didn't do anything to me. Nice roses.
I try to grow everything, sometime not successful.

Sooooo glad to see this comforting video, Mustbnuts. Thank You!

We have received a river flood warning this week, and it has been raining for two days. All of my plants look so miserable. The only one good news is that the project of my garage roof replacement and the north side fence had been done by yesterday. Because of the heavy rain, the workers postpone the backyard decking to next week. We're flying to Taipei to visit our family next week for two weeks. Happy holidays! Hope that everyone is happy and everything is going well.

In enjoyed both the slide show and the music. I rather like hauntingly sad. I recently read 'The Cellist of Sarajevo' and played the adagio every time I read it.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
