lament of the heart....

John Hiatt, Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival
September, 2010

"My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer," the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky."Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams." Paul Coehlo, The Alchemist.

in search of dreams....
may it always have a soundtrack to deepen its meaning.

may it spring from the divine emptiness where hope germinates

may it include the fruits of lessons learned

may it permit you to float like a golden leaf caught in an upbreeze.

may it move you beyond the suffering fears to an upturned grin.

may it allow you to hear the grace notes lingering in the harmony.

may it leave you yearning for another taste of life's sweetness.

may it boost your courage to seek out the moon even when its hiding.

may your dreams keep you company when the world fades into a solo lament of the heart.
