Good Friday Music and Musings

As some of my friends know, I play at playing and studying piano music. I also teach piano students how to play piano and read and interpret music, on a small scale. I've never in my life really had the opportunity to properly study music or piano, but I've done a lot, by God's grace, … Continue reading Good Friday Music and Musings

Invisible things and fear

Well, I certainly never saw the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic coming, nor its US/world economic consequences, nor shortages of supplies, and especially not the social distancing/self-isolation required as a responsible response to the virus threat that may be coming.  Who ever thought churches would close services due to a disease threat?

Little life-it’s enough.

I recently watched a movie called Hidden Figures.  Well, actually, I drafted this on 3/2/18, so it was around then. A year and a half ago is recent when you’re in your sixties. And you never know what you’ll find when you attempt to clean off your desk.  Hidden Figures is about three African American … Continue reading Little life-it’s enough.
