Food for the soul

is that which brings me peace and joy, makes my spirit dance. And of all the things that I thought of music stood out head and shoulders above the rest.

I love listening to instrumental music. It's so relaxing and soothing. My favourites are violins, piano and flutes.

Music also helps me meditate, particularly the flute. There is something hauntingly beautiful about the sound of the flute. It's melody is mesmerising.

There are days when I know my soul cries out for it. I think it's when Spirit wants to connect with me.

Music is definitely food for my soul.

Enjoy my favourite song "Spanish Eyes':

  3. An early example of this is in the Old Testament of the Bible. King Saul when he was unhappy would ask David to play his harp to help him soothe his soul. Read you on ABC Wednesday.

  4. Nice choice for the F day!! The Indian bamboo flute or 'Bansuri' is very important in Indian classical music and Lord Krishna is traditionally considered as the master of this kind of flute. Simple instrument and beautifully lilting sounds!!

  8. The flute is definitely one of my favorites, too, Suzy. My daughter and niece both played that instrument and provided the music for Danny's and my wedding. What a memory that is!
    Blessings to you!

  10. How wonderful!!
    For me, its always the Violin or the Veena that soothes.
    Sometimes, even drums, tabala or the Mridangam work wonders.

    Yes, instrumental music is divine!
