Hans Christian Anderson:

“If you looked down to the bottom of my soul, you would understand fully the source of my longing and – pity me. Even the open, transparent lake has its unknown depths, which no divers know.”

“Just living is not enough,” said the butterfly, “one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.”

“Where words fail, music speaks.”

“Sharp knives seemed to cut her delicate feet, yet she hardly felt them, so deep was the pain in her heart. She could not forget that this was the last night she would ever see the one for whom she had left her home and family, had given up her beautiful voice, and had day by day endured unending torment, of which he knew nothing at all. An eternal night awaited her. ”

“My life will be the best illustration of all my work.”

“It is only with the heart that one can see clearly, for the most essential things are invisible to the eye.”

Morning reading:

We should love, not in word or with the tongue, but in deed and truth.​—1 John 3:18.

practical application:

We should be willing to perform acts of love for our brothers “in secret,” or out of the limelight, when this is possible. (Matt. 6:1-4) We should also take the lead in showing honor to others. (Rom. 12:10) Jesus set the pattern in honoring others by performing the lowliest of tasks. (John 13:3-5, 12-15) We may have to work hard to develop the humility needed to show honor to others in this way. Even the apostles could not fully understand Jesus’ actions until they received holy spirit. (John 13:7) We can show honor to others by not thinking too much of ourselves because of our education, material possessions, or privileges […] (Rom. 12:3) And rather than envying those who receive praise, we rejoice with them even if we feel that we deserve equal honor or a share of the credit for what was done. [excerpted: w 17. 10 9 “Love in Deed and Truth” pars 9 & 10]

When in Rome, Raven.

Nope, am not in Rome. Nor am Raven. Haven’t been to Italy since 90s..before our four brood born. A quick memory pops to mind of Chato and me on waterbus..figuring out our ride. Did my LOVE of Italian music (libretto) translate correctly to vaporetto stop in Venice?!

I don’t speak Italian…IF You call “singing” …aka cat sCrEeChInG to Andrea Bocelli…language lessons?!…lol:) SURE! we did manage to navigate successfully. Aka jump on and off okay to get some good gelato. (Have a funny photo somewhere (lost in the cyclone of children rummaging through old albums) of me enJOYing; IF find may future upload here.)

My/any (self-)study of Italian and school music stunted…sacrificed for other reasons/pursuits. (no regrets; Wish i could sing…Opera;) or just carry a non-nasally tune.)

My music appreciation continues to flourish, however.

God, i have so much to learn!

I don’t indulge it (music). (Though, may be hard to defend considering most of my blogs include selections that speak to/sing to/touch me/my heart/my mind…usually deeply. And somehow (Thank God) fit/harmonize with these writings.) I have to keep music in its place or it would/could consume…capacity to overtake me and emotionally drown me like Tsunami.

(which is why “any” selections tip on the positive; mostly.)

Will Always LOVE MUSIC..but i don’t live for music. (My life is not dedicated/devoted to it. (Am dedicated to Yahweh.)) Though it helps me live. One description of Music: a beautiful language–a Divine Yahweh Gift–for which i seek fluency gratefully & humbly; i hope.

(It’s strange..when “listening” (not playing) to intense strings/violin; it actually does something to my brain; i f~e~e~l the vibrations sensations; literally. (Yeah, she’s a strange one!))

I love “his” Nessun Dorma (Bocelli)..preferred over Pavarotti’s.
