Today was the Solstice and I heard there was quite a lunar spectacle last night in regions not plagued by cloud cover and snow. I’ll take the snow though as it makes everything lovely. It’s been quite a winter already… and winter is just starting.
Tonight I got an early start on one of my New Year’s resolutions which is to get back into playing music in sessions more often. It felt so good to gather with long time friends and share a few tunes. Food for the soul. Some other food for the soul is this interview with one of my favorite authors, the late John O’Donohue, sent to me today by Jessie. I highly recommend. So much of his writing centers around the notion of Beauty and its place in our lives. For him, and me, music is a tremendous source of true beauty. What brings beauty into your life. What gives you joy? Seek it. Find it. Share it. Happy Solstice.
