When contemplating peace, inner peace must be in the picture as well. Enjoyment of beauty is an important source of peace.
Beauty can be found in many places but we often miss it when in haste.
Human voices is one source, but sometimes we need to close our eyes to realize this. The voice of a loved one, a child, a singer, a funny stranger…
Personally I feel like a voice fetishist at times. Here is a great ballad with Donna Summer but it is her partner, Matthew Ward, that really thrills me. A partner who sings like a panther, that’s the picture I get in my head and heart.
The mind of love must be a cousin to the mind of peace.
