Nothing like a little grace to brighten a person’s day, and Alondra de la Parra does it for me today. Some call her enthusiastic, others say she’s passionate. I think she’s simply beautiful.
“When I was a kid I said, ‘If I’m not an old man with white hair, I can’t be a conductor’. But that’s not what music comes from. It comes from your soul, your mind, your grit, your experience as a person, and the way you relate to people. There’s only one thing you can do when you get to the podium, and if I am a 31-year-old woman who likes to dress like a woman, then I am happy to be that.”
– Alondra de la Parra
Make it a great weekend. While there are many tragedies unfolding in our world every day, there also are those very simple things about life that makes everyday worth experiencing. It’s up to you to seek them out.
