I know what you mean

about someone wanting to talk longer than I want to listen. I always try to remember that some people don't have the resources of friends and phones and emails and and and to talk to. So I try to keep my own busyness from shutting out his need for an ear to hear.

I also love what you said about the trumpet bouncing around the walls of the city. I can still hear in my mind's ear a time when I heard, and then soon saw a stumpy little Salvation Army lass, playing sweetly on her coronet "Jerusalem, Jerusalem. Hark how the angels sing..." And it was for just the barest second angels songs echoing off the walls of the new Jerusalem. "the Kingdom of God is at hand", someOne said, right? You just have to keep your eyes and ears and hearts open for it.

And I love the word "embouchure"- learned it in Jr.High- maybe you did too? Funny how it still comes up from time to time.

Glad you had a happy day. Thanks for giving me a happy morning now.

Dennis -
I thought your response to this entry was poetic and lovely. Made me feel good to read it.
