music and courage

As much as there are times for planning and sorting things out and looking ahead and setting goals, there are also times -- often, many times --for taking the next step when that next step, and what comes after that aren;t clear. A leap of faith, you could say, or a step of one.

Music is a good companion for facing and preparing for such times, whether they come with excitement or reluctance.

Music is always a great way to center yourself before proceeding forward. Thanks, as usual, for the beauty expressed in photos and music.

It sure feels like ever more courage is needed. There are a couple of Nickel Creek songs that are sort of my anthems for doing something "brave."
