I believe that music, at it’s best, impacts the heart and mind of the listener. Music has the power to engage the soul, the spirit, the mind, the body – – the whole works! It has the power to rouse us to action, to put us at rest, and gives voice to the joys and sorrows that are deeper than words can express.

Music is a gift that must not be kept silent. It CAN not be kept silent. It longs to be shared . . .

Don’t you hear it?
& I shook
my head no
& then
she started to dance
& suddently there was
music everywhere
& it went on
for a very long time

& when I finally found words
all I could say was
thank you
