music, autumn, and a cup of tea
A good cup of tea helps, too. A musician I know says that though she has to be involved in a lot of social networking on line in her profession, a big pot of tea, a good friend, and plenty of time to talk make up all the social networking she really needs. I think she has a point.
A sunny winter morning in Massachusetts is where this cup of tea found me, as I’d arrived a bit early for one of those good conversations with a friend. Both the time for reflection and the time for conversation were blessings on that winter day. I wish both of these things for you as this holiday season begins, and continues.
Naturally, I think music goes along with this idea, too.
Harper Tasche is a musician from Washington State whose reflective recording Long Night Bright Star goes especially well with this time of year. It’s an instrumental recording, mainly harp, with music that gently yet powerfully suggests the season. If you’re in the mood for Christmas music, you’ll want to listen for Tasche’s album called Wintermas Moon, too. Click on the link in the title to hear a bit of it.
