How I began my day...

How I began my day . . .

Early this morning, before I got  out of bed, I picked up my iPhone and read the news headlines. Big mistake. Big.

But then something popped up. The opportunity to hear Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” on YouTube. So I did. All 17 minutes and 38 seconds of it.

In a world where narcissism, sarcasm, and destruction seem to be the norm, here was a soaring crescendo of vibrance, skill, complexity, and talent that lifted my spirits.

That’s how I chose to begin my day. With amazing music, with hope, with a certain amount of exuberance.

We choose what we allow into our lives, our minds. I chose Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue.”

What did you choose today?
