I am sure they taught us at school that sound is essentially a vibration. Vibrations, waves – they are good words in light of what happened to my heart this week.
Well this week I heard and listened to sounds that were new to me, sounds that sent vibrations through my heart, ripples and waves as sweet as a bubbling fountain.
There was no gift that could possible have tasted sweeter, no embrace that could have warmed my bones more. I heard, I held my breath, I listened….to every nuance, every pause, every inflection. I was thrilled. Simply thrilled.
There are some sounds that bring with them celebration, rejoicing, happiness….they are sounds that the heart treasures. Vibrations that tickle the heart and lift it like a bird taking off in flight.
