Let Your Finger Do The Walking

Sometimes you just have to let your fingers do the walking . . . through pages, over ivory keys, between strings, until they bring you what you want - the sound you've been looking for, evoked from the depths of your soul and translated through your fingertips. This is music - from spirit to matter, and back again. This is why we are musical humans - why music is imprinted in the very sub-cellular system of our DNA itself - in fact, Scientists and Musicians have created MUSIC from DNA structure - we'll have to find some and play it for you! The point is - it's in our blood, it's in our flesh, it's in our soul and spirit and mind ... music! Music! Music! Keep it coming, keep it good, keeping it real ... that's our job. Your job is to enjoy, to partake, to ingest the music and let it come out of you again in song, in humming, in merry melody, in kind deeds, in sweet caresses to your loved ones ... music is spiritual nutrition. Eat and Drink!

Friends, the End is Near - the End of the Week, that is. With much love and gratitude we wish you an amazing Shabbos - it's a special one (they all are, aren't they?) but the "chok" (statute) of the Red Heifer is read this Shabbos, and the essence of a "chok" is you CAN'T understand it rationally, it's beyond the capacity of the human mind to grasp - which is why HaShem gave "chokim" to us, to strengthen our faith and give us an opportunity to have a "reason to believe" - JUST BECAUSE HE SAYS SO. We wish you ever-growing EMUNAH FAITH and - Good Shabbos! Good Shabbos!
