30 Days of Thanksgiving, Day 2: Refreshing stillness

Every day is filled with music. If I'm not playing something, I'm listening to something, overhearing something, or something is playing in my head. I really can't complain. I love being a musician for this reason- I always get to be a part of something beautiful.

But there really is something to be said for the beauty of stillness. A forgotten art in the frantic pace of the semester. Often my stillness involves checking Facebook in the halls of the practice wing, waiting for a room and thinking of all I have to do. 

But in the stillness I experienced this morning there were no electronics involved, no background music. Just my breathing, a prayer of thankfulness- and a strain of music that weaved gracefully in and out of my consciousness.
