My New Song

"Underneath all the texts, all the sacred psalms and canticles, these watery varieties of sounds and silences, terrifying, mysterious, whirling and sometimes gestating and gentle must somehow be felt in the pulse, ebb, and flow of the music that sings in me. My new song must float like a feather on the breath of God."
- Hildegard von Bingen

As the year comes to a close, I've been remembering my favourite pastimes as well as the new things I've come across this year. Music has always been a favourite pastime of mine. Listening to Hanson's 'Penny and Me' reminds me of my 14 year old self falling in love with music and the sense of freedom and escape it brought me during that year and the years to follow.
Soon to pass another birthday, I'm thankful for the gift of music, song, melody and lyric God has given me the opportunity to enjoy, whilst bringing me closer to Him. I've embraced a side of me which I am keen to explore even more, writing lyrics and melodies; not knowing where it will take me but currently enjoying it as a simple pleasure.

On the topic of creativity, I've become a young woman with a vision, literally. Hoping to start a new hobby (once I can acquire a good camera), photography is something I've longed to tried and can't wait to see where this eye's beholder will take me. I've been inspired by some of Rachel Hendrix's work. See here: Rachel Hendrix Photography

I recently had my graduation (see above picture). It was a time of recognition and recollection of the past three years gone by. I don't know what next year and the years to come hold, but I plan to embrace it with each passing second.

love & light...♥
