the promise of music

Woody Allen called one of his films “Radio Days“. The emerging music once was a big promise for us with focus on new life styles! Today, arrived at the end of life, no more radio plays in our home. But on my guitar I try to thank with my fingers for what music has given me: courage and pioneering spirit, dance in joy and curiosity, enthusiasm of carefree playing, openness for experimentations throughout life. Music, what an universe, existing parallel to poetry or photography!

  2. It’s a fine movie. It was only several generations ago that radio was introduced. Before then music was transmitted hand to mouth, in person.
    It was a more active, participatory activity.You know, out on the porch, at dances.Things have certainly changed! I’ve written on the blog what an inspiration Pete Seeger was to me in that respect. Anyhow, keep playing that country music, Frizz!

  5. What a lovely, lovely thought–thanking with your fingers–music, more music!! Even though I can’t sing well AT ALL, nor play any instrument–music is always in my head; as I go about my ordinary days, I’m humming singing–probably the wrong tune or wrong words–but with such happy Gratitude for All God Gives.

  7. I find the radio annoying apart from NPR and only listen to you, cds and a huge digital playlist. My daughter has recently discovered all our old vinyl but sometimes the sound of silence is best!
