Since it's coming close to Christmas again, and this deserves attention perhaps. Also, I, because I had a lot to digest emotionally, found myself taking a hiatus from composing for 2 months, I jsut didn't compose. In going back to it, I am amazed at what music really is...how a phrase can bring out a reaching out into a whole spiritual plane that eases the mind and relaxes the senses... balancing life. What kind of a miracle this is, is more than one can describe in just words – what music does. With Christmas and all the hype, I wonder how many people really still understand the simple lesson that Jesus was and his lesson in forgiveness which eases the mind and relaxes the senses, that we can perhaps come in touch with a world to help us when all our grievances would only confuse us and make things worse.
Just thoughts, because it'll be Christmas again soon.
