I recently watched the TED video by Rives: The Museum of 4 in the morning
It starts off with Rives sharing the poem by Wislawa Symborska and it’s so incredibly beautiful. But what is even more beautiful is his story and this experience.
I’d kill to know who LD is and I love the idea of pairing songs to poems. I’ve always had an interest in poetry but if i were to be completely honestly I don’t always understand them so the interest doesn’t last long.
But to pair it with a song, a new song, or even one I’m familiar with. I feel like that would give the art an entire new experience.
I also think this would make a lovely cafe idea. Great for a first date, or a romantic date, or date night in general. People could be in different rooms/sections or bring their own headphones and get this mixed variety of poems and songs to listen to and read as they sip on their coffees/teas and share their pastries and soufflés.
Mostly I love how reading the poem sparked this memory within his deep subconscious mind. I personally tell myself that after she tweeted him and he looked up the mix-tape and read the poem again they met up and re-connected. They got engaged and had a small outdoor spring wedding and are living beautifully romantic lives that the rest of us could only dream of. Filled with cuddles and music, words of adoration and moments of bliss.
