The Gift of Music

After silence that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music. ~Aldous Huxley

Music is a gift. Expressing the inexpressible. Giving language to the mysteries of the heart. In difficult times, it is such a relief to sit down at my piano and play, create, and emote. It is one of the ways that I connect, with myself, and with my soul. And there is something felt that is not felt any other way, than when a melody washes over you and strikes a chord deep within. It moves you.

For me, I am grateful. Grateful for a means of expression, creativity, and healing when I am worn down from the struggle of life. For all of us, it would do our souls well to take some time and give ourselves this gift. Listen to something that speaks to you, that awakens you, that calls to you.

Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.  ~Red Auerbach    

Words make you think a thought. Music makes you feel a feeling. A song makes you feel a thought. ~E.Y. Harburg
 


Music takes us out of the actual and whispers to us dim secrets that startle our wonder as to who we are, and for what, whence, and whereto. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
