There's some music ..........................
I can be trying to recover from a nasty headcold (as I am now); worried about leaky pipes and no $$; worried about kids or bills (or kids with bills!). I can be in traffic, in pain, in limbo. It doesn't matter where I am or how I'm feeling, there's some music that makes it all disappear. It's like an answered prayer. It's like floating.
Canada's classical station CBC Radio Two is "Rocking Your Bach" this morning. I like classical music, and I really like Bach. But I just heard JS Bach's Cello Suite #1, and it was more than just music.
Here I was -- alone in my (this morning) dreary, damp office, rain falling outside, head cloudy, nose stuffed, shoulder aching. But when I heard that music, I had to stop typing, sit back, close my eyes and drink -- long and deep. Soooo, beautiful! It transports me:
--- to a sun dappled meadow of flowers or a quiet beach or the loving arms of my Father; warmth and peace fill me; the presence of God is all around me and it is simply divine.
Back to reality all too soon. But it's a little piece of heaven that I can enjoy over and over again, whenever I need it.
How about you? Does music touch your soul? Does it stop you in your tracks? Transport you? Make you cry?
- What music?
- And where do you go?
