I attended a beautiful bris this morning. I don't go to too many of those, but at this one, the cantor said something that gave me pause. He said that when there's a tragedy we are all quick to leave, catching the first plane or train outta here! But when there's a celebration, we can't go, we have to stay at work and we miss the party. He highly recommended that we reverse the two and celebrate life, attend, go and stay.
Below, I'm experimenting with a link from Amazon, for a young composer I met later in the day. He just came out with a new recording of piano music. Liz Atz did the cover art. Listen, eat a donut and celebrate life.
