More fun , more life, more often and a great soundtrack to listen too - sounds like a wonderful recipe. My kids keep me in touch with some of the new sounds and I particularly love and recommend DJ Tiesto album -'Just Be' - so powerful and emotional. Sending you healing love Laura from over the pond.

Bach's Goldberg Variations are my "sacred music"; I have many keyboard recordings, but this guitar transcription is wonderful:

Kurt Rodarmer The Goldberg Variations for Guitar. - BWV 988 ...

A very special musical gift will arrive in the mail shortly. It is intended to lighten, lift, and foster laughter - sometimes the best medicine.

You know I love you but also know that I respect and honor you as well!

I hold a picture in my mind of your essence - that is forever perfect and whole.

Love and kisses -

Your Ever Faithful Niece,

call me stuck in the past, but the artists work that I would take with me to a dessert island are: James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, and Barbara Streisand. The albums are, respectively: Gorilla and Greatest Hits, Blue and Blonde in the Bleachers, and People.

For me this music is uncomplicated, authentic, and fun!

Laura and Judy, I've put together a set of seven play lists that each contain seven songs.

Seven is supposed to symbolize perfection; completeness; fullness.

Laura, as you and Judy continue on this journey of healing, I hope this music supports, inspires, moves and embraces you – all of the things you have done for me.

To a complete, full and perfect journey!

With respect, fear, joy, hope, sadness, heart, humility, and most of all Love and Gratitude, Stacy

Here's something I'd like to share about music and singing.

I'm one of those people who love to sing but can't carry a tune. So, I like to sing along to musicals. Any musical would do, but my favorite is Jesus Christ Superstar. I saw the play in NYC when it first came out, so it's special (we saw Jesus and Mary having dinner together two tables away from us after the play...I kid you not).

My friends and I used to meet at one our houses and sing together after school. We'd get assigned parts (You get Judas; I'm Mary this time, and so on). We even taped ourselves...we thought we were pretty good! It makes me laugh just to think about it.

So, recently I've gotten out some of the old albums and musicals and have been singing up a storm. It's great fun, especially if I take it to the next level and not only sing the parts, but act them as well!

Love: Jeanne C

I love the overture to Romeo & Juliet by Tchaikovsy. For the sheer passion and longing of it.

And then any 70's disco. For the fun of it, although you may hear some passion and longing in certain Rod Stewart hits ....

Much love,
Holly Morris Bennet

Oh, Laura, I am making a CD of some of my favorite music for you right NOW. My partner Nikolai and I love music too, and since he is from Europe, he is into music that has yet to reach the States. I am thinking of you as I select just the right songs and my heart is alive (and singing) with your presence. I am on belay, teacher.

Dear One; Took a little step-along today for about 10 miles and you were in my thoughts more than usual. I was drinking in the gifts of Moma, what with the changing leaves and quiet streams along my path, and I thought about that tiresome old overworked "Thinking Out Of The Box" intellectial shiboleth. The Laura's of the world don't have boxes to be in, or out of. You just give of yourself to help others understand and accept reality, and give it a whole hearted thumbs up! You are not always understood or honored, but those of us who know and appreciate your gifts know and are in awe of the creative sparks that fly from the heart and soul of one very special soul. Peace, Carver
