THE REVILED: Book One of the Dark Fey Series, by Cynthia A. Morgan, is a five star read. It is a fantasy with some very unique characters and an imaginary world. It reflects real life battles between good and evil. There is love, friendship, determination and loyalty. The story is very engrossing, entertaining and an enjoyable read.

Life Keeps Changing

…..

The currents of life ever shift and change their flow.  Sometimes those changes bring challenges, other times, Blessings, and even less often, both.  This is one of those times.

Challenging, because I am in the midst of a life altering new direction.  Blessings, because this new direction shall allow my Beloved and I to share our lives together.  As it is Romantic Tuesday, I thought it a fitting time to announce my happy news.

No, sorry, no wedding bells pealing….not just yet anyway, but certainly a joyful occasion nevertheless.  You see, over the next few weeks, I will be moving to the Washington DC area where my Dear One and I shall embark upon sharing our lives together.  A new challenge in more than one respect, but a Blessing to be absolutely sure!

This change also will require me to take on a new job, which I have been searching for diligently over the past several months.  Again, very challenging without a doubt, but another opportunity to be Blessed and to Be A Blessing in new situations, with new co-workers and new patients.

After a great deal of consideration, I have come to the realization that I am going to need to take some time away, not only from my blog, but from social media overall, in order to retain my sanity. (sanity is, of course, a relative term!)

Therefore, while this announcement is Happy, I am also sorry to report that BnV will be silent for some time.  How much time I cannot say precisely, but be assured, I shall return.  I will also be working on putting the finishing touches/edits on a project I have been working on for, literally, 20+ years.  It is a Jane Austin style, romantic drama period piece set in the 1820′-30’s with, currently, over 147,000 words!  More on this to come…..

So until life once again settles back into a routine, I shall wish you all the Best Blessings, Happiness and Peace …..as well as Challenges….that life has to offer 🙂

Music’s Mystery – #Music Inspired #Musings

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

I’ve heard it said that only human beings have been given the gift of music; that only people create songs, sing and serenade their souls with this most magical and uplifting form of communication and communion. Yet, should we not consider the song of the lark? The haunting ballads of the whales? The mournful call of the wolf? The robin’s lyrical laugh at dawn and dusk? The crickets that serenade the nighttide? The burbles of monkeys swaying in the trees? The laughing of the hyena?

Who is to say that in their melodic tunes, caterwauls, howls, wails, and other worldly vocalizations there is not some measure of music. Why should we be the only ones to sing praise, to croon our love, and to bewail our distress? How can we know, in truth, in honesty, that the deliberate scree of the hawk, the piercing bugle of the elk, the chattering of raccoon and ferret, and the murmurings of infrasonic elephant calls is not music to their ears?

Music is a form of communication that lifts the soul, expresses emotion, and brings one being into contact with another being. If this is, indeed, the definition of music (of which it is a form) then can that being not be one other than human? Does not one wolf join another when it sings? Does not the whale song change season to season and year to year, picked up by another whale to be carried on? Does not one roaring lion inspire the entire pride by its lusty cry?

Consider what the morning would sound like without the sweet music of the birds. Contemplate what the summer night might be when not a single chirrup, trill, drone or buzz lilted through the air. Ponder how deep and lonely the oceans would be without the drifting, breathtaking songs of the whales. Can you even imagine a mountain landscape without hearing the echoing howl of a wolf or the bubbling laugh of the loon?

If these sounds, that can captivate us and uplift our thoughts, our hearts and even our souls, are not music and do not do the same for all those who hear them, regardless of race, than perhaps, we must follow that course of logic and say that cave paintings are not art, tap is not dance, improvisation is not acting and free verse is not poetry.

Or perhaps, Music Teaches the Soul what the Heart Feels and Guides the Heart with what only the Soul can Truly Know.

Stirred

To the very Depths

Of All which makes me

Breathe Deep

From those Places within

I Rarely visit

Stirred

By the Gentle Supposition

Of All which makes You

Breathe Deep

From the Depths within

You Seldom Seek

Or Stir.

Sweet as a laughing brook through the

River of a steaming day

 

Fulsome as pirouetting snow

Around a singing, horse-drawn sleigh

 

Delicious as the ripest berries

Celebrating flavour

 

Lush as Indigo moonlight

Glimmering Silver to ponder and savour

 

Life Sings

Spirit Sighs

Heartbeat Whispers

Dreams Fly

 

Symphony of Harmonious Sound

Ever Ringing

Ever Springing

With Blessings Waiting to be Found

Breath of Tranquility
