3-Day Quote Challenge – Day 2

Gracious Ioana, composer, songwriter, and music & piano teacher who writes Music Teacher Lifestyle, challenged me to the 3-Day Quote Challenge. How could I say no? To honor her, my theme is “Musical Quotes”.
My favorite classical composer is Ludwig van Beethoven. Energy charges through his creations like
wild horses stampeding across the plains, or
stormy waves breaking over a ship’s bow, or
new love ravaging a tender heart.
His brilliance will not be denied, and people all over the world listen and interpret for themselves.

Mark Nystrom’s painted interpretation of Beethoven’s 9th. Honest.

3-Day Quote Challenge – Day 1

The lovely Ioana, who lives in Bucharest, Romania, has challenged me to the 3-Day Quote Challenge. She is the composer, song writer, and music & piano teacher who  writes Music Teacher Lifestyle.  To honor all Ioana does to make the world more beautiful, my theme is “Musical Quotes”.

Stephen Schwartz has composed many world-famous musicals, captivating our hearts with his ability to touch the Truth in our souls. Wicked, is the real story behind the Witches of Oz, Glinda (soon to become the Good Witch of the North) and Elphaba (destined to become the Wicked Witch of the West). Having been reluctant roommates who became friends, they’ve come to the moment they must go their separate ways.

“For Good” celebrates the power friendship has to make changes in our lives, our hearts, and our selves.

“Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better
But because I knew you…
Because I knew you…

I have been changed for good.” Glinda and Elphaba

With thanks to DailyMusings at A Day in the Life for reminding me of Wicked‘s glorious music.

Through a Lens Kindly — Week 3

Myopia creeps up on you until one day, you realize you’re squinting at the blackboard just to read the assignment. But because squinting solves your problem, you don’t even think to say anything about it to your parents. They usually have to notice you squinting at something else unless an observant teacher alerts them first.

And you end up with glasses. They make your eyesight great again, but now you have to remember to wear them. You have to make a new habit. I’ve done it. It was hard at first, but the improvement those glasses made to the quality of my life was so great, it wasn’t long before putting them on was a no-brainer.

Living kindly is like that. You have to see the world through a kindness lens, but that doesn’t mean you have to see the world through Rose Colored Glasses.

Glasses 5
Ooo! But isn’t the world a pretty place this way?
