Morning Musings

Peace and quiet. Finally, after yesterday’s day of celebration that started at three o’clock in the afternoon – fireworks blasting, zipping and booming – lasting well past midnight, Sunday morning brings blissful silence. Not even the leaves on the trees move this morning. I think they, like our wild animal friends in the woods out back, are resting from the noise and distraction we humans imposed on them.

Take time for reflection, gratitude; silence the busy mind, nudging you with insistent nagging, and find happiness today in the beauty of being still.


  • Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata
  • Mozart’s Requiem in D Minor: Lacrimosa
  • Johann Sebastian Bach-Air on G String
  • Rachmaninov: Piano concerto no.2 op.18 (my favorite piece of music, ever!)
