As I carry with my on my search through life it is music that lifts me and helps me along the way. As I walk toward the exercise arena each morning the tunes flow from and through my mind, following the constant motion and beat of my footsteps. Music is consolation - yes, and inspiration that moves me forward.
The Kingdom is one of Music,
Meaning for minds melded with those
Able to share the sphere of nature
And being. I live in a world
Real with reason as the fuel
For the spirit of man.
(James Henderson, from The Kingdom of Music, 1992)
