Real music occurs when your noisy mind yields to the silent beauty in your heart.
Music occurs in a moment, a song is sung in the heart and the one that hears that song is touched by the note and the song then is born out of the responses to what you heard and a reasoning in such a way that you can now but it together.
Words can forge or fracture the heart
Truth and beauty that comes through the song are always dressed in simplicity and wonder
Every time that creativity occurs God reveals another facit of His nature
His nature is absolutly beautiful
Beauty is silence lovingly broken
