Quote of the Weekend

“Each person who ever was or is or will be has a song. It isn’t a song that anybody else wrote. It has its own melody, it has its own words. Very few people get to sing their own song. Most of us fear that we cannot do it justice with our voices, or that our words are too foolish or too honest, or too odd. So people live their songs instead.”

Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman

(I love the way Gaiman writes. He takes the mundane and makes it magical.)

Thanksgiving 15

I’m thankful for music.  Music has been a part of my life since I can remember.  There was always music in my house, my parents invested in piano lessons and guitar lessons for all of us at one time or another, and I still listen to it all the time.  I love everything from Celtic music to  Heavy Metal.  Metallica is my favorite band along with Mumford and Sons, Flogging Molly, and Linkin Park. I also spend a large part of my life listening to Christmas Music.  Music expresses such deep emotion and longing.  It can be such an aid to remember the truths of God, and is a great aid to meditation.  Plus, it gets you moving!
