Catapulting into Classical

A headlong leap into music, history, and composing

Haiku Wednesday: Thanksgiving


Music lifts our hearts,
Soothes, calms, revives, restores us
Let us be grateful


Here in the United States, many people will celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow.  It’s a time to reflect on the things we are grateful for.  Music lovers have many things to be grateful for.


The music of the last 1,000 years can be accessed with a few clicks.

The scores are also available.

A wealth of music from around the globe can be experienced without taking a plane, ship, or extensive trek.

Live performances are everywhere.

Musical instruments are readily available, as are talented teachers to help us learn.

There are books and courses to add depth to our knowledge.

Singing is free.


We have heard music Beethoven never heard.

Some of us have already outlived Mozart and Schubert.


So sing, or play an instrument, or listen to your favorite recording, and celebrate music, share it with friends and family.

And now, I wish you joy:

  1. And so it was. And so it is. And so I hope, imagine and fantasize it will always be. Simply too beautiful for words. Whatever is too beautiful is always just what we need. So needed to make up for what is always and daily too hateful to bear. How he came to that. How we come to this. Hell of a job, Ludwig. Hell of a job.


  2. Lovely message, Chris- thanks! and Jolly Holidays to you all-

    Tom and Carol
