Solace...


Sometimes there is such a place and such music that the world is a bit gentler, a bit kinder, a bit sweeter.

When my spirit needs solace there is a place, there is ever a place...
I need only to close my eyes 
to reach the meadow, 
to lay on an old quilt warmed by the sun,
where pines and quakies whisper gently in the breeze, 
where fluffy clouds drift in a blue blue sky,
 and a small stream flows,
where the fragrance of mother earth is love.

When my spirit needs solace there is music, there is ever music...

  1. I sat up in bed listening to the two cellos and got lost in it. Now I need to go make breakfast, take the pills and face the day! Nice start!

  3. Solace for me. Sitting in the barn aisle listening to the horses chew their dinner. As a little girl, when things got tough, I'd go sit in the stall of my sweet mare and listen to her eat. It still works.:) The meadow and the old quilt sounds good too!

  6. Thinking of Brigid today... and the solace that only the warmth of a dog... your dog... curled up next to you can bring...

    Thank you for the moment of peace in an hour of turmoil...

  7. GOD,GALS,GUNS,GRUB: Oh Dann, I think you meant this comment for my dear friend Brigid at http://mausersandmuffins.blogspot.com/ and I will send it on to her.
    I posted this before she told me about Barkley. A very sad day for many.

  10. Brighid... thank you, but actually the comment was for your terrific words about solace while I was also thinking of Brigid and Barkley... I've followed your blog for some time... I guess I never commented before...

  12. There are also special moments where Metalica is called for. Wisdom comes with knowing which to play when.

  13. LL: LOL, my opposite choice would be "SAIL" by AWOLNATION which the fly boys got me hooked on... I'm not quite old enough for wisdom, still working my way thru reckless abandon.

  14. I like Pink Floyd for mellow.

    If you want to take that one step further, go the i-tunes store and listen to 2 Wicky by Hooverphonic.

  15. Not too much into Hooverphonic,
    but Pink Floyd's "Learning to Fly" is on all my devices, well most of them...
