Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukkah!
While we each have different backgrounds and beliefs, I truly believe we are all brothers and sisters. Candles are an important symbol in many of our winter holidays: our symbol of light over darkness, good over evil, hope and joy quietly chipping away despair. And the holidays are full of beautiful, seasonal music, music that echoes the complexities of our beliefs with their own rich diversity and complexity.
While visiting a dear friend and her family, I came across this gem of a quote. It addresses the very heart of who we are and how we approach life.
It's a quote about our ability to celebrate the wisdoms of all our brothers and sisters. These are our most precious gifts. I cannot think of better gifts to share than music, love, and wisdom. Enjoy your holidays!
A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.
