MUSIC IS A MORAL LAW,
IT GIVES SOUL TO THE UNIVERSE
WINGS TO THE MIND.
FLIGHT TO THE IMAGINATION
A CHARM TO SADNESS
GAIETY AND LIFE TO EVERYTHING.
IT IS THE ESSENCE
OF ORDER AND LENDS TO ALL
THAT IS GOOD,JUST, AND BEAUTIFUL.
PLATO

You see that? on the piano ( horrible electronic imitation Ugh!! ) ...that beautiful vase of violets and mimosa??? Let me tell you how they arrived there!!

I went to the Cafe du Midi yesterday ( saturday ) with my two dogs...the disagreeable Dachshund and the angelic Hunting Dog ( both rescued ).  Oh yes, there are several canine regulars who join us for lunch and and a glass. There is also a cat, who comes from across the road!

 Now, I will say that certain dogs ( and we can guess who ) do object quite loudly to cats but I am pleased to say that the objection is only verbal!! All the others are totally accepting!! Wouldn't it be wonderful if us humans were always like that????  I refer to Puccini and sing ' One Fine Day...'.

I settled down to my lunch and was sipping my glass of excellent red wine ....served just right, not too cold! when who should appear but madame from the kitchen.

 Madame is the owner's wife and has been in the kitchen for ever and sees that the standards are superb and the timing absolutely perfect, If it's 3 crotchets per bar, then that's it. No messing about...I have sometimes taken a cd of my music for this kind lady as she loves ' classical' music.

She approached my table and presented me with the beautiful bouquet you see above!! I was so touched by this gift, given with so much love and sincerity that I was tearful. She said ' de tous de nous' ( from all of us ).

I knew people there noticed of course... but you know something? I am  happy to know that I can now be vulnerable in public and not mind!! I was brought up very differently..(.born centuries ago in 1933) Boarding school, stiff upper lip. Don't tell anyone, don't show anyone. That was the regime .....BUT I had music to tell it all to.

 If you are young or indeed ' old' and reading this, please whatever you decide for your life's work.....let it be a passion! Something you love doing! You may never be rich in terms of money but if you do that you will be happy and have untold wealth and abundance inside you which will always support you!!!

 A last piece of good news! My  real piano is coming back this year!! I sent it away to an angel of a friend when I moved to this appartment. Now ,I cannot live without it anymore and I absolutely trust that the right situation will unfold with my decision. Have a lovely evening all! xxx
