Beautiful Moments are Magical

This place will kill you and your soul. The backstabbing, the drama of the grid is enough to chase out the strongest. There are not-so-nice people here. Some with problems so deep that one can only imagine. And, yet, I have met some of the most wonderful avis/people here in the world.

The ones I love are supporters in every sense of the word. They come through with advice and knowledge that helps with everything that I do. People here are very generous and kind. Those are the ones I gravitate towards and include in a special circle of friends.

Yesterday was magic. A dear friend, an old friend of Xavier's extended family, has given me a gift of art. The art is well-known and the artists on this grid will recognize it immediately. Lika is back on the grid building his houses. He is a builder and artist who originally created the "Cave" that we have rezzed for special occasions.

I am a very emotional person. Tears flow easily when I am presented with great music and art. Live musician, Max Kleene has moved me to tears so many times that I feel almost silly over my reaction. And, the first time I saw a Starax at an outdoor gallery, I was so overwhelmed with just the building of the sculpture itself. When I saw Ballet Pixelle's first performance, my breathe caught in the back of my throat as I choked up with tears.


In real life, the tears flow even when I listen to a youth symphony. I hear the errors and the missteps, but I feel their passion as they play. I know these young musicians are not looking for stardom; they play because they love the music. Outsider art are gems. Precious pieces done by people with no training or pretension. They make art because their souls demand it. I have been overwhelmed with this type of art.

For me, it's not a measure of technical excellence but rather the presentation and the delivery. There are many great musicians, artists and dancers in this world. But, there are only a rare few that will touch our hearts. And, that is something very magical... and when you are there at that moment, there is a sense of seeing something that no one else has experienced.

When I watched the finale of America's Got Talent, the show let me know that I am not alone in this feeling. This is why everyone in the entire world connects to certain artists. And the gift that I received yesterday was one that I had connected to the very first few months that I was on this grid.
