Description
A short song cycle that celebrates the pursuit of beauty in this often difficult world and encourages a spirit of gratitude for all the beauty one has experienced throughout one’s life. Both poems emphasize the value of riches that are not monetary, but rather the importance of loving the special moments and people in your life – and of loving life itself.
