To The Conductor

(if you are viewing this via email, the website has a recording of this poem and commentary; click the title above)


We’re part of something bigger than ourselves, a symphony that requires our silence at one time and our sounding at another.

For some, it’s the silence that’s hard. For others, it’s the sounding.

A Note I Appended for My Sister, Cindy
There’s a lot to think about in this one. Sometimes, words of correction, caution, healing, comfort, or inspiration NEED to be spoken. SOMEONE has those words. It’s their turn to speak (I’m really helped by thinking of our speech as part of a symphony). I doubt anyone has ever accused you of withholding good words. In fact, your readiness to praise and encourage is part of what makes you so lovable.
