Musings From A Musical Mind

Beauty And The Beast

Another great production put away and remembered by pictures – snapshots of people – frozen moments in time.

This was my favorite.  I am overwhelmed with emotions and nostalgia – being a part of this great event.  Knowing this cast was one of a kind – that these eighth graders are moving on – and it will be different next year – special in its own way – but never the same.

If you had the priviledge to see this production – you will know what I’m talking about when I say the word ‘chemistry’ with the cast – the teachers and the wonderful parents and volunteers behind the scenes – all working together to make sure it all came together and that it was AMAZING.  It was.

I am so grateful for this opportunity to be a part of something bigger than myself and feel that everyone should have a ‘moment’ like this at least once in their lifetime.  I’ve had several.  My great love for these students is why they always come back into my life – even when they go their seperate ways for a season – and it is always like a reunion when they come back to see me.  Many of them are still in my life today – even after years of being with them.  Theater students, former choir students, and my private piano and voice students.  They are all special and each one unique.

What is the secret to happiness?  Find something that you are passionate about – and do it.  Invest in others.  Love them with all of your heart.  Embrace each moment.  And watch it come back to you.  It will.  I promise ♥

God Bless

Transforming The Beast

He was proud and arrogant

cocky and strong

born of privilege

he could do no wrong

A disguised person came to his door

to offer a great test

he outwardly scoffed

Compassion for a guest?

Thus began the curse

and he was also disguised

for showing no compassion

he became the despised

Then she entered his world

shaken but unmoved

he was undone

as his many emotions proved

By the love of another

was how the  curse could  be broken

his heart – entering hers

with words unspoken

Something was lifting

at first all seemed strange

but the darkness that bound him

slowly began to change

He, who was vulnerable underneath

watched as her love was guiding

the little child

he was desperately hiding

She silently willed him to be better

holding  him with such belief

that there would be no more sadness

no more grief

Could she love him?  He wondered.

A beast imprisoned by sin

there was no beautiful face to see

only someone hideous and grim

But something strange began to happen

as he changed deep inside

The curse was lifting

the selfishness and pride

And as he  felt something more

her love transformed him

made him whole again

filling his heart to the brim

Ah – this is what love does

transforms what must die

refreshes and renews

to find a real beauty deep inside

Today – look beneath the surface

you may find

a beauty waiting where the beast once was

clearly seeing where once you were blind

For love transforms

even the ugliest heart

into something rare and beautiful

lovely from the start

God Bless
