Sunday Song – Jazz Tunes

Musical tones bring joy and happiness within, dance captures sound in every step in time.

The blues tells a story in itself. It can make you happy or give you a feeling to swing.

Music touches us all in different ways …

It can heal hearts,

calm our fears

or, create memories when heard.

Sunday Song – The Interview with God

People may not remember what you said,

but they will remember how you made them feel ….!!!

What happens in heaven? 

Will I sit on a cloud? 

Is walking or talking 

Or jumping allowed? 

Will I be on my own? 

Or with some of my friends? 

Does it go on forever? 

Or eventually, end? 

What happens in heaven? 

Will I play a harp’s strings? 

I can’t play piano 

I can’t even sing. 

Who chooses the music? 

That angels inspire? 

Who does the auditions? 

For the heavenly choir? 

What happens in heaven? 

Are the streets paved with gold? 

Is it crowded with people? 

Who’s incredibly old? 

Will I know who I am? 

Will I know what I’m called? 

If I pinch myself hard 

Will I feel it at all? 

What happens in heaven? 

Do I go through a gate? 

What if I get myself lost 

Or turn up too late? 

Is my name on a list? 

Is the gatekeeper nice? 

Can you sneak in for nothing? 

Or is there a price?

Art & Music – A Lover’s Dance

The stages have been silent for a long time during the recent encounter of the COVID19 pandemic. The pastimes we loved to do were no longer open. 

Art museums, theaters, musicals, dances locations, and concerts shut down completely. The heart-nurturing events I enjoyed stopped.

I’ve been a dancer from the time I could walk. I danced to make people smile. Although I’ve danced in every genre, my favorite has always been tap. The high-energy rhythms can raise your endorphins to great heights. 

 I adore all genres of music, including classical from my ballet training days. My husband is a New Orleans jazz and blues music lover.

Because of the closings and isolations, we decided to have Saturday Music Nights. We’ve watched YouTube videos, streamed many concerts, and played dance music to keep up our stylish moves. This week I chose the genre. I hope you get as much energy from watching Sarah Reich from PostJukebox Music tap dance.

Enjoy … Isadora

Art and Music – Silence

Silence is a source of great strength.©LaoTzu

We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And, that’s the burden of a year

The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, 

and only the wise can see them.©Paulo Coelho

The sea has its pearls

the heaven its stars

But my heart, my heart

my heart has its love 🍃🍃

Nature produces

the greatest results

with the simplest

means. These are

simply the sun,

flowers,

water and

love. 🌿🌿

Nurture Awakens

Every season spills its own wonder on earth ….©Isadora DeLaVega

Spring Dawn’

Every flower of every tomorrow,

is a seed well planted

on a winter’s day.

Then, earth awakens.

The wonder of another season.

Bringing colorful flowers,

for Spring’s debut.

Look not for beauty,

nor color of skin,

but, for a heart,

that is loyal within.

For, beauty may fade,

and, skin grow old,

but, a heart that is loyal,

will never end.
