>I’ve been taking a few “personal days” to try to stop all the hurried “doing” and learn how to just “be.” As a dear friend has pointed out to me several times over the years, I never allow myself to just “do nothing.” But my struggles with my writing have been screaming out to me lately, that maybe the well is dry. Being quiet means listening to voices, maybe even God’s voice. I’m trying to pray. Trying to forgive. Trying to believe. Reading some beautiful writing. Watching some mediocre television drama. And listening to some music that heals. And wishing I hadn’t given away our piano back in 2001.
So, I thought I’d share some of the music videos I’ve been “indulging” in this week. Click on any of these to watch/listen, and feel free to leave a comment or a suggestion of more music that heals. What do you listen to when you’re having a hard time?
