…after silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible, is music. Aldous Huxley
Just a note to say Happy New Year to you all!
In this new year, I am getting use to being an emptying nester – no small task! I enjoy the volume of my kids. My son is THE FUNNIEST guy ever and keeps me in stitches. My first born is loud, just plain loud….and I so miss that. We text often but I don’t think there’s a volume control on texting – if so, I would crank her up!
My other daughter always has music playing. She has introduced me to so many eclectic types of music. She is also an artist – she sees the world is a different way- an amazing way. She opens my eyes and my ears.
How very fortunate I am!
My kids are largely responsible for all the instruments that I play – always trying new sounds. I am working on a Band for my “other” kids at Church. It has been a hoot trying out some bluegrass, gospel, popular and old camp fire songs at Services.
I decided my next instrument will be an auto harp. I remember playing this back at Ridgeview Elementary – is this school still opened?? gosh, I hope so!!!
So just a final thought – take time to be silent in this new year… and savor. It is an inexpressible gift. And then take time to make music, dance a jig and be happy!
