""Blessings Strengthen life and feed life just as water does." Rachel Naomi Remen, MD

This blog is a digital blessing bowl, a place to record the small blessings that are often missed or forgotten but which make life holy. Feel free to add your own blessings to my blessing bowl. Or perhaps you'll be encouraged to start your own.

"Music that gentlier on the spirit lies"

Music is the medicine of the breaking heart.  ~Leigh Hunt

When I'm melancholy or sad, I look for music to soothe me - not necessarily to cheer me, but to keep me company, to express my feelings for me.   I discovered Eva Cassidy and her music just a few months ago and have listened to it often since.  

Music that gentlier on the spirit lies,

Than tired eyelids upon tired eyes.

~Alfred Lord Tennyson
