Musings From A Musical Mind

On Auto Pilot

Ever have a time in your life where you are just functioning – as if on ‘auto pilot’?  Lately that is what I’m experiencing.  Events have built up over time – heading towards a specific goal – and the busy schedule and blood sweat, loss of sleep and tears – are finally a PAY OFF!!  As you see before you the results.

I am trying to ‘enjoy’ the journey.  Not anxious to have anything go too fast – things that have taken a while to accomplish – not wanting them over too quickly.

I am trying to ‘slow down time’.  To stop and linger.  To enjoy every moment.  To hold on to every ‘snapshot’ in time – every timeless moment – knowing that very soon – it will be gone.

This weekend I am in ‘auto pilot’ mode – with a busy production schedule and a sore directing arm – but my spirits are high – I am attempting to ‘hang on’ to ‘relish’ and ‘enjoy’ every moment – knowing that another ‘moment in time’ will never be quite like this one – again.  I am not going to think about next weekend and the busyness that waits for me after these performances are over tomorrow night.  No.  I am going to rest – and enjoy.  My mind is going to be still – I am going to hang on to this – enjoying my students – embracing old friends that I haven’t seen for years – and special moments I will always remember.

My prayer for you today is the same – that you would ‘rest’ and ‘remember’ – enjoy every moment in time – it won’t come again.

God Bless ♥


A Moment

I had a moment the other day.  A moment that I knew ranked up there with all those special frozen “moments” in time – that I have experienced throughout my life.  It happened the other day in  theater class – where I have the privilege of teaching and investing in students through music.  When a student discovers how great they can be – then it is a moment for me.  A student came ALIVE during a scene from “Beauty and the Beast” and I gasped!  It was an incredible moment that moved me.  This so rarely happens during an early rehearsal – I just sat there smiling, knowing this production will be the best one yet – thanks to students who push past the limitations of their age – and give it their all. I have had many such moments since I started being a music teacher – some 15 years ago now.  These moments make the “job” not seem like a “job” – and more like a pleasure. It makes all the icky times worthwhile.  All the blood sweat and tears – bearable.  Just knowing that the price we pay – is HUGELY worth all the frustration, yelling and short tempers.  In the end – the production and experience of playing to a full house at the Civic Theater  is what all the students remember – and the teachers never forget.

When was the last time you had a moment?  When did something or someone really move you?  Do you invest in people and friendships?  Do they bring you joy and make you smile and even laugh?  Are you helping to create a moment for someone else?  Do you share your time, humor and kindness with others?  When was the last time you made someone’s day?  When was the last time someone told you – “you just made my day”?

I want to be that kind of person.  I want to invest in people.  I want my friends to like being around me – and be richer because I am in their life.  Don’t you?  Start by being that kind of friend to someone today.  Bring humor and love to someone’s world today.  It will bless their socks off.  I promise.

God Bless
