Music forming...


"Worlds are forming in my heart."

(Meister Eckhart from Expands His Being)

In the evening at my children's home, ritual has been beautifully formed... and music lives there. My daughter-in-law has enjoyed playing piano since she was a child. While she was pregnant with my grand baby girl, I would often check in to see how they were all doing, and to have a kind end-of-the-day phone conversation with my son. As we spoke, many times we would be accompanied by my daughter-in-law's music in the background - often she would play hymns that were soothing and inspiring all at once.

One evening during my recent visit with them, I heard music begin and stepped out to look down from the second story to see a wash of golden light cast upon mother and child sitting together at the piano. My grand baby girl was cradled in her loving mother's arms... and they were playing the piano together. Sometimes mother would play a whole piece and grand baby girl would simply listen; and then mother would give her a turn. My son likes to sit as appreciative audience member.

Worlds are forming in my grand baby girl's heart... I am deeply grateful for her parent's loving kindness, and for the music that is calling to her. I am so very blessed they all belong to me...

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
