"I got to thinking one day about all those women on the Titanic who passed up dessert at dinner that fateful night in an effort to 'cut back.' From then on, I've tried to be a little more flexible."
(Erma Bombeck)

Burger with a side of Handel

Why does this make me cry?

Thanks to another blogger, Steve at Pithless Thoughts, I came across this video. Steve very eloquently wrote about his reaction to it, so I won’t duplicate his remarks here. All I know is that when I viewed this video, I was moved to tears.

I can’t articulate exactly why. Maybe it’s something to do with light invading darkness, beauty intersecting with the mundane, and all that. Maybe you’ll view this video and feel none of that.

But, if you’re like me, maybe you are struck by the sublime converging with the commonplace. If that’s not worth singing about, I don’t know what is.

The kingdom of this world
Is become the kingdom of our Lord.

George Frideric Handel
