Musical Rapture

Jamming with Linda and a ukulele on a Tuesday afternoon.

"If I were to begin life again, I would devote it to music.  It is the only cheap and unpunished rapture upon earth."  
- Sydney Smith

One good thing about music, Bob Marley said, is that when it hits you, you feel no pain. When Linda and I do music together we feel no pain. Each note pulls us further into the moment, and the result is pure joy, freedom, and ecstasy.

A slower lifestyle allows more time for creativity. For the juices to flow one needs a quiet and calm space unhurried by the trivialities of a life hooked into the machine. Artists are legendary for knowing when to be idle and let the muse do her work.

And the inspiration can come at any time. An ordinary Tuesday morning can bring spontaneous moments of musical magic.

We can feel the rapture flowing through us.
