"Music takes us out of the actual and whispers to us dim secrets....."
                                                    Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803 - 1882

My song includes---
Carving out times of andante and allegro -
Circumstances and people in legato and staccato-
Challenging minor nuances and sharp projections -
YET - it is by these deviations and resolves that life becomes joyful and full -

Not long ago I came across the website of Lynn Jericho who offers wonderful, insightful studies with ideas to ponder and encouragement to look deep within..... a specific thought from one of the studies spoke of the gift of music.

"  How do we receive and give melody, rhythm, tone to each other.   Can you play the major or minor reality of another?  More importantly, can you play your own minor and major keys with equanimity and fierceness?  ....  Your song, not the song of your family or your friends or your enemies, but the song that is uniquely and joyfully you".  Lynn Jericho,  Inner Christmas 2011

Are you playing your own song?
What themes are prevalent in your composition?
What music do others hear when in your presence? 
What measures do you want to add?  delete?  keep the same?

Take time -  dig deep - compose - your way - your path - your music - the world is waiting....
