Be like a train; go in the rain,

go in the sun, go in the storm,

go in the dark tunnels!

Be like a train;

concentrate on your road

and go with no hesitation!
~Mehmet Murat ildan


Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.

It turns what we have into enough...

.........and more.

It turns denial into acceptance,
chaos to order, confusion to clarity.

It can turn a meal into a feast,

a house into a home,

a stranger into a friend.

~Melody Beattie


Don't be satisfied with stories,

how things have gone with others.

***Unfold your own myth.***
~Rumi


I hope you will go out and let stories,

that is life, happen to you, and that

you will work with these stories . . .

water them with your blood &

tears & your laughter till they bloom,

till you yourself burst into bloom.

~Clarissa Pinkola Estes

New College Choir


Oxford Advent
and Christmas Music


One of the things I love most about Oxford is how much world class music is available to enjoy almost every day of the year.  Sometimes I don't even have to buy a ticket.  I walk by Merton College, down Grove Lane, and hear the organ scholar or the choir practicing.  I walk by our neighbor's window and hear his glorious violin, sopranos ride by on their bicycles singing their latest piece of music, and I've even sat outside the Sheldonian for a time and listened to Mozart. But there's no other time like Christmas for music in Oxford.
