This morning we went for an early walk, the grass was iced over. The air was crisp. I thought about where I was feeling most grateful today. The answer came as my cheeks pinked up and breath came out in clouds of vapor.
What has been uplifting, soothing, calming, and energizing in my life? What has been playing in the background of some of my most memorable moments? Generally, music. I am grateful to those who create it, perform it, and teach it. I’m thankful I had the opportunity to read it, perform it, and teach it as well. It has its own energy. Music inspires. In fact, you could say no human truly teaches music. Rather, music is the teacher.
I have much more to say on this topic, but for now I’ll stop. With just one more question for you. What have been the soundtracks of your life?
I’ll be sharing some of mine soon.
But I’m truly grateful that there’s music in our world. That people sing, hum, play an instrument or beat a can with a wooden spoon. I’m grateful.
Every. Darn. Day.
