    Beauty makes me cry

    Sometimes, when listening to music or looking at paintings that I think are beautiful, I feel as if the artist had a connection with the divine while making that work. Appreciating art feels like a spiritual experience, and beauty as a representation and also a gate to a certain kind of divine or god, an energy I can't explain. When I feel this connection is strong, I cry of beauty.

    I feel the same way when looking at a beautiful landscape, a beautiful animal, and other scenes of nature.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Oh, yes. J. S. Bach's music makes me feel that way, sometimes. The perfection is too much for my Ti and I tear up. I think I teared up reading GEB, too.

    yeah, a lot. i cry at a lot of stuff. i'm a secret softie. it takes the tension away.

    i used to believe in a sort of god when i listened to music. that's the closest i've ever gotten to having any sort of "faith."

    Yep. It's not like sobbing crying, more like weeping.
    Yes, I smell like a horse. No, I don't consider that a problem.

    The music theorist in me -- well, that's pretty much the whole of myself -- is currently crying. I mean, you made me cry. Not from joy.

    I gotcha now man. So you are a proper theorist of audible decoration? I may start a thread pertaining to the subject. I have some questions.

    Me, I can't read. I can only decipher.

    My band will just talk numbers of the key. Since the notes are diatonic in this case its quicker to say 6 5 4 instead of changing the tonic
