soul music.

Beautiful indeed. May they have come away from the experience with a desire to continue enhancing their community in ways that are meaningful to them. Thank you for sharing this post, Beth.

With Love,
Russ

I didn't have my glasses on....

we stopped  to listen to an ensemble of young girls

playing lovely music at the weekend farmer’s market.

their teacher said they were in the 8th grade

where everyone is asked

to contribute something to the community.

these girls chose to offer what they had to give –

their natural gift of music.

they had to organize the day

 by asking permission to play somewhere

finding transportation

planning what to wear

being  on time

introducing themselves

and

remembering their music and instruments.

all of the money they earned

from passers-by

went to a local charity.

it was a beautiful lesson.

“music is the movement of sound

to reach the soul for the education of its virtue.”
