"Music hath charms to soothe a savage breast, to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak." William Congreve

What would we do without music? It expresses what we sometimes cannot.

Rikkij said...

Renee-life isn't fair anyway. Music makes it tolerable. sometimes even good. Love ya! ~rick

Art by Sascalia said...

Music is one of my great loves in life too! x

The Gypsy said...

I totally agree, too.
hugs

Annie said...

I love music, but I would have to change that to art, or friends or love or cats :-). Love you Renee.
xoxo

Deborah said...

Good morning Renee. I've been thinking and praying a lot about your scan results, and praying for peace of soul for you.

Peace be with you, my friend.

All my love, Deb

yoborobo said...

I agree completely - it is cathartic. Music and art make me believe in God. And there seems to be a type of music for every mood and need. :) I just realized that I have music on while I do my art, but not when I write. Never thought about it before! Love to you my friend, sending you sweet songs! xoxo Pam

Silke said...

Yes to that!!! Much love, Silke

studio lolo said...

One of my husbands favorite quotes is "Don't die with your music still in you."

Amen sister.

hugs on Saturday!

Hi Renee, life without music would definitely be dull. Why music is the soul of our being. It invigorates us, refreshes our soul so to speak. Sometimes it makes us sad, mellow, blue, but what would it be like without music. I don't want to know. I would still be going around la la la la la la la la lallaaaaaaaaa :O hee/haw Have a great day and my thoughts are with you.

K said...

couldn't agree more sister! i have music on all my waking hours...it is my therapy.

Sophia said...

I could not imagine my life without music in form or fashion. Music is the center of my life. I not only love to listen to it, but I also write songs and sing professionally. My heart is filled with warmth when I am able to share that gift/ability with others.

((hugs))

lakeviewer said...

Strike up the band! Funny how we take music, and natural sounds for granted; when they are gone, when we notice their absence, we are in need of comfort, in need of resuscitation.

p.s.

I still hear my mother's lullabies sometimes as I'm preparing meals. I left home when I was a teen; saw Mom a couple times after that; my longing for her is connected to her songs, and her food.

Sarah said...

Or indeed much fun. I think if we didn't have it, someone would be bound to invent it!

Micki said...

Totally true, I have laughed, loved and cried all through music!
Music is very powerful and without it life indeed would not be fair!!

Micki x

The15YearOldNaive said...

Agreeeeeeeeeeeeeed!

:D

Mim said...

it certainly would be less fun

Lola said...

Without music life would not be, period.

Any news from the postman? Do I have to smack those Florentine mail for not doing the job right?

Ciao musical Renee, my heart is always with you.

Lola xx

Marie S said...

Life with out you would not be fair either.
Thank you for being music in my life.
Oh Renee I probably love Halloween more because I manufactured for retail for so many years. By the time Christmas came I was a puddle of speechless incoherence. I also think it is because I could be childlike and carefree, dress up as a witch and get away with it. LOL!!
Madi is so full of love that she will just add Bella to the rest of you wonderful aunties. She indeed feels very very blessed to have you all.

Marie S said...

Hi Auntie Renee, thank you for stopping at grandmas to see me.
I hope you are doing well!!
smooches and baby hugs,
Madi

Ces said...

Hello Renee dear. I am singing my prayers for you!

TERI REES WANG said...

Renee: Did I share with you yet..

www.hayhouseradio.com ?

Not music but, show host made up mostly of intuitive healers. It could be interesting for You; it is for Me.

My first choice is Caroline Myss.
Be well.

Lola said...

Yes! It's the damn Pope - he's got your package, the brute.

Will get another one in the mail to you in the next few days.

How are you and your loved ones, my darling? You're in my prayers.

Lola xxxxxxxxxxxx

Baino said...

I was just going to say that I cannot live without noise or music in my life then realised that I'm sitting here at 8:04 on a Sunday morning listening to nothing but birdsong and wind chimes. I guess there's music in everything. It's quite charming actually.. .dance today sweet Renee even if it's only on the inside. Thinking of you.

Arija said...

On the other hand, there is music is everywhere, in the wind and the water let alove the birds in the air.

~Babs said...

Music: Medicine for the sick soul.
Has been for me anyway.
Many times over.
I am, at the moment listening to "Autumn Leaves" by Eva Cassidy.
I don't know how I lived so long without knowing about this beautiful songbird introduced to me only last year.
Beautiful Songbird angel,,,,

secret agent woman said...

Life can be desperately unfair even with music. It's just that music can hlep heal you when life is being so unfair.

Madtexter said...

Without music, life would not be. The harmony of nature, along with the lyrics within us bring us to existence. (Time for me to tamper out this joint.) JUST KIDDING!!!

I don't smoke dope. Did once. It made me stupid...and I don't like stupid, and not being in control of myself.

Big hug,
-Mad

kj said...

Dede said...

Life without music? NOT! Hope you got a little "me" time today and laughter too.
(((HUGS)))

Debra said...

Oh but who said life was fair?.... then again sometimes life without music is fair, at least for me when I hear rap or jazz.

How ya doing lady? I am wrapping up swaps and the planning of my daughters shower in January.

Karin Bartimole said...

ain't this the truth! nor art or poetry, or novels - and I'm glad to hear you never knocked your head while reading and walking at the same time :) I've never been known for gracefulness!! more like the queen of klutz.
love and hugs, Karin

Mariana Soffer said...

So true, great post, includeing the image and all, also with music you can stop your own ethernal conversation with yourself. I do not know what music is not able to make.

Take care my friend

Mariana Soffer said...

Love
M

miruspeg said...

Hello Renee
I have always said music is food for my soul and I live by that remark religiously.

You have a wonderful following, all these people love you so much. You certainly are shining star here on the blogosphere and in the universe.

A Cuban In London said...

Oh, the beauty and simplicity of so few words and so big a thought! Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

LDWatkins said...

The rain, softly falling outside the door to my studio (corner of my large laundry room LOL)is my music this early morning. Music comes in so many forms. Morning love to you, Lynda

yoborobo said...

Sending you a Sunday hug. Music is on. 60's rock. :) Love to you! xox Pam

Manon Doyle said...

Hey Renee,
I so agree with this! My life basically revolves around music!! Life would suck without it!!

xoxoxo

Sonia ;) said...

Music gives an escape, a memory, and communication through generations...Hug Jacquie and kiss Sheldon on the forehead for me.

God of Another World said...

Completely agree!

Amy C said...

yes indeed, I get hooked on one song for a long long time and listen to it over and over and over.

kj said...

over and over in my head, these lyrics, for some reason, assigned to you, dear friend:

And I think it's gonna be alright
Yeah, the worst is over now
The mornin' sun is shinin' like a red rubber ball

Clarity said...

I am reminded that one of my favourite sounds is that of geunine love.

Followed by delight or laugther.

Followed by silence where one has room to think and ponder.

Jaliya said...

Without music, life would not be worth living ... !

Loving you, Renee -- thinking on you every day -- wondering what's happening with your loves ... xoxo

nollyposh said...

~i agree~ x

Bella Sinclair said...

But life isn't fair.

Sometimes, life gets so ridiculously bad that you can't help but laugh. Just shows that life has not gotten the best of you yet.

I thought about you all day today. xoxoxo

Two Mile Creek Primitives said...

If I get too busy with my crafts and I don't hear music for a while...then I'll hear a song and I think what a waste,, I could have been listening to music the whole time.. I realize how much I missed it. Then I want to dance to it....Thanks for making me remember to take time to listen to music.
Love you Hugs Rene

Jen said...

I love it!

Woman in a Window said...

That makes me laugh! I love music and I don't want to piss music off, but life's still not fair, just richer for it.

Christina said...

The pale observer said...

Couldn't be more true!!! My son is serenading me right now with his guitar while I write and it's so soothing!

Great point!
