Upon this gifted age, in its dark hour - we have received the gift of the iPod

Music has come back into many more areas of my life thanks to the iPod!

Hearing more music when I'm reading or exercising, just makes me want to play more music. Its wonderful.

I've played the piano since I was six years old. Blessed with good sight reading (I can read most music and play it right away) it means I can play lots of things (without practicing) just for the pure pleasure of making music. It is such a treasured gift that makes my life rich beyond anything money can buy - the arts have so much to give us, why don't we weave it in more to our customer connections?

This poem is my inspiration....

Upon this gifted age in its dark hour
Rains from the sky a meteoric shower
of facts..
They lie unquestioned, uncombined.

Wisdom enough to leech us of our ill
Is daily spun, but there exists no loom to weave it into fabric

Edna St. Vincent Millay

I'm working on a project that started on Thursday June 8 to begin to build that loom.... not for everyone or everything, but in an area that I care deeply about, health!

just noticing this entry of yours - congrats on joining the world of Apple! how's the health loom comin along?

ps. did you ever end of up seriously looking into a mini? I have to admit I had no idea what one was at the time you asked me and didn't say so - in case you still have your eyes on one, I was asked to share what probably is one of the craziest analyses I'd ever done in my life!
