The Greatest Pleasure in Life

In his recent English exam, Fred Mann of Transition Year wrote about the greatest pleasure in his life - relaxing in his house in Wales :-

After eating I lie back on the sofa and think of bed, but there are a few things that need to be done first. I get a big mug of tea and walk outside. The howling wind has calmed and as I walk across the lawn to a seat, I think of what I would like to do tomorrow. I never get to think about it because as I reach the seat everything changes. I lie on the seat and look up and there, like a gift is the most beautiful sight in existence, the heavens, twinkling as if God was looking down on me.

Read the full piece here.

Later in the piece, Fred listens to 'the most relaxing song I can think of', 'Untitled 1' by Sigur R
ós. So here it is.
