music and time

Listening to and playing music, practicing and learning it, are ways to find quiet, as quiet often makes a space to find music. Both arise, I think, from the quality of focus, on the one hand, and being relaxed, on the other.

Some while back, I read that a person in medieval times received as much information in a year as a person now does in the course of one day’s time. As information, connectivity, and electronic devices -- and people’s expectations concerning all that -- continue to grow, we might be up to receiving several years’ worth of information in a day by now.

As this season unfolds, take time to step away from that flow of information and into the stream of listening to playing, and sharing music, relaxing into a landscape or a candle flame, and hearing the quiet.
