Yesterday was a beautiful day. After a week of rain and fog, the sun was out and bathing everything in a golden light. As I drove home, a birch at the roadside caught my eye. The leaves were glittering in the sun, forming a delicate contrast with the tree and the blue sky. A little aesthetic every day miracle – enough to make me feel comfortable and serene. I was listening to Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Goldberg Variations”, BWV 988. This added to my bliss. What a beautiful day. Sure, I was busy, but nevertheless I found peace in the sight of those golden leaves and this heavenly music.
