It's time for five minutes of pure beauty.

I've posted this before but it's time for a repeat. There is nothing to watch. Just listen. Turn up the sound, close your eyes, block out the distractions of the day and listen. Try to feel the music. No other piece of music affects me the way this piece does. It is the only piece of music that regularly and consistently moves me to tears. And this is a particularly beautiful rendition -- I've heard it butchered as well -- and that moves me to tears for other reasons. Take the five minutes, you need it, you deserve it. You won't regret it.
