I soar above the red rooftops
of the City
above the steeples
Mission Dolores Church
below the dusty ledges
there never was a sky more
nor a bird more pure.

It seems there are as many ways of doing “Wordless Wednesday” as there are bloggers.
I define ‘wordless’ as non-verbal, which is why I include music in my #WordlessWednesday post.
I prefer symphonies, and flash mobs because they are wordless examples of
our collaborative genius of as a species.
This Mozart piano concerto, played and conducted by Mitsuko Uchida
makes me proud to belong to the human race.
Her passion is contagious.
