Themes for Great Cities - Vienna

in these solitary moments, deep inside the corporal stillness of the midnight hour, listening to a song from decades past that still affects my body and soul with its opulent melancholy, a graceful collision of classical and –  circa 1981 – modern electronic sound. 298 more words
