You will hear voices singing
You will hear music from a violin
You will read noble praises,
Harsh words and lines of elegance
Fullness will swell in your heart
You will be filled with rich moments
Poverty will be swept away
You will put your hands together
Accept your state with gratitude.
To have a big circle
One starts with a small one
Then one more then another
You will meet different people
In each different circle
They will not know each other
And they will be your friends
All of them will know you
And you will know them.
They will share your joy
Offer gratitude to the Lord
All these you already know
You shall not be alone
The circles will embrace you
Music will linger in your mind
Like light entering your window
Suffusing your room with clarity
A world with many connecting circles.
Note: Julia Fischer is one of my favorite artists. She is one of the great violinists in the world. She is also a piano virtouso. I like her attitude to life and her insights in music and art. Here is a link to her music and interview:Music
Thursday in October, I walk to the river
everywhere is bursting with colors
go out, waste your waist away
Arranging themselves for photos
Their faces distracted by music
Isolating their own thoughts.
Not much reading
Hard to concentrate
Listening to music helps.
note: Sunrise at Diamond Peak Ski Resort at Lake Tahoe.
Good morning,it’s Wednesday. Pause,Relax,Listen to Music.
Dvorak Cello Concerto II – Yo Yo Ma – Berliner Philharmoniker
a hummingbird coming
on 4 pianos
a burst of speed
a little space opens
window wide enough
for a billion stars
birds fly away
I close my eyes
listen to music
in my mind
I feel young again
a girl on the run
a shepherd, violinist
age is a state of mind.
note: Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade
