The concert was a perfect mid week interlude. Cello played with passionate perfection and my dear music minion friends to converse with. When I got home, I opened up my email and was greeted to missivethat made me grin ear to ear.
It was titled, “In the Pursuit of Beauty” with a list of 5 major musical and literary events to attend in the next two months. And there it was… DP had purchased me Neil Gaiman tickets without even asking. I almost cried.
I had been so upset that I could not get tickets; yet, DP…thought ahead, to purchase tickets for me without asking….for just about everything I would ever want to attend over the next 60 days. Kindness, thoughtfulness, what wasn’t to love.
He also gave me my new mantra, if anyone asks what I am up to these days, I will just say…
“I’m in the pursuit of beauty” and leave it at that.
In the pursuit of beauty through art and acts of thoughtfulness and kindness. I am fortunate to have such a person in my life as DP to teach me through his own actions.
