“The arts…are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possible can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country
This beautiful mural is painted on a wall in Toronto
Thanks Laura, my sweet Irish soul mate, for enlivening, in your own way, that lovely mural from Toronto. I am just trying to visualise the scale to which your soul would have grown, learning, practising, and attaining a level of proficiency in music, the greatest of all arts. You may not have sighted my post titled, ‘The Sound World’ (you have to hit my site and scroll down a bit, because it is an old post); I should like your take on that, being the musician that you are…warm regards and best wishes… Raj.
Thanks for the comment Raj. I feel truly blessed to have gotten to study music and to have it as part of my everyday life. I do think my whole being has grown immensely through studying music and sound healing. I loved your post, it is always wonderful to hear others speak about how important music and sound is to them. I totally agree with the great Beethoven when he said “Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual self”.
This is so true! There is something so magical when you teach a child a musical instrument or how to paint. Their eyes light up and they discover a power inside them that feels unique to only them. I feel that that magic can be harnessed at any age, yet it saddens me that our (world) culture puts monetary value on it and turns art into a competition. (American Idol anyone??)
