The Beat by Troy Music Hall #56, All Love Songs
[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]
i carry your heart with me(i carry it inE.E. Cummings
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Music plays such a large part in all of our romantic lives! The staff of the Troy Music Hall has compiled a list of their favorite love songs for your enjoyment.
Fall in Love by Asking 36 Questions
Did you know two people can fall in love just by asking and answering 36 questions, each designed to create an escalating sense of vulnerability? How does that work?
According to an article in the NY Times: “The idea is that mutual vulnerability fosters closeness. To quote the study’s authors, “One key pattern associated with the development of a close relationship among peers is sustained, escalating, reciprocal, personal self-disclosure.” Allowing oneself to be vulnerable with another person can be exceedingly difficult, so this exercise forces the issue.”
What’s Your Sexiest Fantasy?
You have to admit, priorities change as we get older. Saturday Night Live nails what many of us have derived a lot of satisfaction from of late, Zillow.com. Who hasn’t searched for more than we can afford and more space than we need as we stay locked inside our current abodes?
