10,000 Hours

10,000 hours is what it takes to master a craft. I did a little figuring the other day. That is a crazy amount of time to spend perfecting your art. To put 10,000 hours into prospective it would take four hours a day, seven days a week for seven years. Obviously it takes less time…

Breathe

This last Sunday, I invited some neighbors over for a concert. I was so nervous. My neighbors were so kind. They encouraged me to breathe and relax. I think I have identified a theme. My horse trainer always tells me to breathe. My piano teacher always tells me to breathe and my neighbor had to…

Magic in a Potato

“…And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” – Ronald Dahl I woke up today and entered my music room, I found a potato in the middle of the…

Divided Nothing Gets Done…..again!

I am frustrated because if I voice my opinion, I will probably be classified as a liberal or a conservative based on my opinion about a subject that has nothing to do with economics. This classification will shut down any discussion, hindering the possibility of understanding what I was trying to communicate. I will be…

Conversation Hearts

Conversation hearts are circulating again. They come out this time of year with their two word phrases, my love, be mine, one love, etc., as if that would actually start a conversation. I venture to say that if I walked up to someone and said, “one love”, to someone it would dry up the conversation…

Very Early

Yesterday, I was blessed to find myself out feeding my horses while the most spectacular lunar eclipse took place. At least the most spectacular lunar eclipse I have seen in my short 55 years. Some of it is because I am now living in Elizabeth, Co., where light pollution does not interfere with astrological events….

Silence Beyond Beauty

There are many things that changed after my brother died of cancer. I found myself on the brink of many changes in my life. I quit my job. I reevaluated my faith. I expanded my view of God. I found peace in a way that I had never experienced peace prior to that event. I…

Riding the Wave

I was sitting in my music room playing Wave by Antonio Carlos Jobim, as the sun came up this morning. I live South East of Pikes Peak and I watched the orange clouds as they were washed with a tint of green blue until all the orange disappeared. The light splashed over the Eastern slopes…

Let Hope Roll!

There is a beautiful tan and white Belgian that lives at the bottom of our hill. If you don’t know anything about horses Belgians are large work horses, breed to pull wagons. You will see them at the Stock Shows pulling fancy wagons. This one is tan with a long white mane and long white…

My heart is with Vegas

“It is said that, “When words fail, music speaks.”, on an ominous morning like this both words and music fail. We are left with heavy hearts and empathy for the victims.” My FB post on Monday Morning 10/2/17. Jeff and Cyndi were in Las Vegas the weekend before the horrible shooting that ended and altered…

Sometimes Pigs Fly

This past month has been a month filled with ups downs. My husband and I found ourselves moving his mother to our side of town. We toured assisted living centers and talked until we were sure that no stone was left unturned. Before we could move my mother-in-law, we had to take her to the…
