carmina charm #7

Do you know that our soul is composed of harmony?

Inimitably charming and soothing, comforting and inviting, your own, neatly, prettily customized place woos with blissful warmth and appeal

When mellow, mellifluous melodies rise, when ambient sonic serenades and alluring acoustic waves imbue the air and people are spellbound, it's the magic of music, its irresistibly engaging essence that makes people unwind, that makes them enjoy themselves, as well as its haunting tonal sonority that resonates (with them), that makes them feel at home - eventually. In the very moment. It bestows a feel of beloging, of ease and contentment, the audience willingly embraces, indulges in - ...
