Favorite Quote:
At your weakest you learn to be at your strongest.

A sad song of classical strings
Strewn together so soft and slow
The meaning behind the wordless swells of strings
And the soul-filled meaning of the piece
To hear the music, so loud around me
The classic music played on the old fashioned strings
Then played from the new generation of computers
All in unison
A symphony of a symphony
Surrounding me
In English class

My English teacher had us read a poem that she wrote to a song, Adagio for Strings. We played it on about 13 laptops, all at exactly the same time from youtube. It was a really amazing moment, so I wrote about it.
