The concert

 I had the opportunity to attend a concert given by the son of a friend of mine. I didn't know what to expect, really, but what I heard was rather magical. The pianist's name is Phil Cook, and his album is now available here. I've found it to be just the balm I need in this midst of all the craziness of this world. It is titled, "All These Years".

  1. Being able to enjoy a Concert and just lose myself in the music would be wonderful. In this world where my family is facing changes. I hope this week at least gets back to some sort of normal life behavior for us.

    1. The album I mentioned contains most of the music we heard at the concert. It is really lovely to get lost in it. I'm listening to that in lieu of the news when I'm in the car, especially. Far more beneficial to the spirit!

  2. Music can truly be balm for the soul. It is why I love opera so much--the music and pageantry transports me to a different world for a few hours.

  4. I am listening to the series of preview samples of Phil's works as I write this. Peaceful and soothing music indeed. My daughter's family here in my new Connecticut home has a beautiful Baby Grand and I have started playing it again after almost 20 years. I play by ear and have mostly played guitars since living in New Mexico in the 1990's. Before Christmas we would travel between the several little churches in the mountains and play Las Posadas followed by dinner in the various villages. Now my rusty fingers are starting to loosen up on the ebony and ivory.

  9. I think that would be lovely - yes, music is very good for the soul. Look after yourself, it's a huge thing that you will never get over. All you can do is make it as easy on yourself as you can - which will take time and effort. You are often in my thoughts.
