There is a concept in music theory, that I find fascinating, called rest. A rest is an interval of silence in a piece of music. When music is composed, along with all the notes and pieces of music, the composer inserts moments of rest where the instrument or orchestra or band don’t play anything. These are very brief moments that are intricately woven into the fabric of a melody bringing music that lifts the heart of the listener.
Why have I been so silent on this blog? I have been resting – accumulating and assimilating. I have been trying new activities, testing new ideas and traveling to new places. I have met gifted people, made new friends and reinforced the idea that life is definitely worth living.
I feel guilty to a certain degree for ignoring this blog but I am happy that I was able to start new ventures and encourage people to do their own.
I hope to start at it again – writing regularly.
So here’s to the future!
