If a composer could say what he had to say in words he would not bother trying to say it in music. ~Gustav Mahler, Austro-Bohemian Romantic composer and conductor
She hasn’t written about it in a while, but Mama is still playing flute.
In fact, she plays nearly Every. Single. Day.
Every writer I know has trouble writing. ~ Joseph Heller, American author
Perhaps some of you have noticed I haven’t been around the blogosphere as much lately as I have in previous years.
Maybe some of you have missed me.
Or my musings.
You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist. ~Golda Meir, fourth Prime Minister of Israel
We’ve been told to expect tribulation in the world,
And we don’t have to look far to see a rocky path:
Crowded with thorns and brambles:
More often than not, cold and unforgiving:
But that doesn’t mean we should give up.
Because peace, real peace, is something most of us crave.
Maybe we’ve been focusing too long on the big picture:
And failing to appreciate how interconnected we small humans are:
Maybe we simply need to place one foot in front of the other:
And keep working toward new beginnings of peace:
Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many. ~Author Unknown
