It has been awhile. The stroke took some of my emotions away, I believe. I am not quite as sensitive, at least, overtly. However, beautiful things can bring me to tears.
Specifically, here, I want to show you a young woman whose voice brought me to tears. I really didn’t know it until I felt the tear drop from my cheek, but there it is.
I am not afraid to cry. I think it takes strength in some situations to cry. I have watched tear-jerker movies and not been moved, only to tear up at a sensational point in an action movie. But music, music does it best. I get really sensitive on shows like “America’s Got Talent”, “Britain’s Got Talent”, “Netherlands”, or “The Voice” – shows like that where people who may have come from nothing reach out and touch us for a brief second. When the audience and judges get it, so often I do too, in tears. Never a river, people, usually just a single tear, but it tells me something got to me and I let it – I enjoy the emotion.
