This performance by members of the University of Washington Symphony Orchestra  illustrates why Mozart is my favorite classical composer:

Mozart: Serenata notturna, K.239

Oh, did I mention that my nephew is 3rd from the right playing viola?

Yup, that’s him!

Aah . . . that’s awesome!

After reading Ally Bean’s latest post . . . and the comments (thanks, shore acres!) . . . I resurrected the Classic Editor.  HUZZAH!

I am a happy camper.

 

If Classic Editor remains available, maybe I’ll find some blog worthy material to share on a more regular basis.

I am also happy that Hurricane Elsa didn’t ruffle many feathers around here.  A few tree limbs down, and leaves strewn around, but no significant damage.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Mistakes do not define you.

Falling down is an accident.  Staying down is a choice.

Forget the mistakes.  Remember the lessons.

Better an “oops” than a “what if?”

Aah . . . that’s better!

Like a Mandala

We must let go of the past

As it emerges

How caught up are you in your story? How much time do you spend defending your reputation with others? Are you ready to let it all go?

Come into the present and Just Be. Notice the underlying feeling of pleasure that saturates the palette of your mind.

It has nothing to do with your story. It is unaffected by your reputation.

It doesn’t come from somewhere and it can’t go anywhere. It exists outside time and space.

It is always there and will never leave you. It is eternal.

When you let go of all thoughts and mindfully observe . . . you’ll catch a glimpse of this very subtle sensation of joy.

Aah . . . that’s bliss!

When in doubt, choose laughter.

Be happy for no reason.

Happy is the new Rich!

Life is better when you’re laughing.

That’s the ticket!  You’re killing it!

Aah . . . that’s better!

Be a warrior, not a worrier.

Live more, worry less.

Breathe in calmness.  Breathe out worry.

Make the rest of your life the best of your life.

Aah . . . that’s better!
