Subject: RE: The essence of the music to folks
Ach, Janie, you do yourself a disservice; you are among the most musical of beings, whether you can "carry a tune in a bucket" or play the harp like Saint Peter or not. And you have touched a chord here; the gold thread that "the music" weaves through our lives, through the momnents of high treasured friendship with common voices and the moments of gut-wrenching siolitude when a long-forgotten voice of song appears in the darkness and saves the heart from failing under its burden. These are why we sing, those who have the ears to hear what the music does for the soul, alone or gathered together. This is why "the music" is a life-saver and a life-maker for me. Thanks for the reminder, musical angel!
