I spent a pleasant morning, Saturday, browsing through the works of Plato, hunting for the source of a quotation I saw on Facebook, today. Now I must admit that in my reading, I have not read everything Plato wrote. Reading the entire Republic has, sadly, defeated me, but I have it available for another try when I retire. Despite my unfamiliarity with his full canon, when I saw this quotation today, I knew it could not be from Plato:. Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form.

We need you!

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything. We get caught up in practicing, learning, instruction— the nuts and bolts of music-making— that we forget how much it means to us deep down.

Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form Plato. Wordsworth Dictionary of Musical Quotations, , p. As a music therapist who also practices the Bonny Method of Guided imagery and Music, this quote is particularly appealing to me.

World Vision staff working in the Center was able to identify a few musicians from Iraq who were willing to take part in a party, initiated by World Vision. The party, which started small, turned into a big one with close to people participating. The main attraction was a lead singer Dia Edwan from Iraq who played a traditional instrument called the oud, a harbinger of a guitar. He was not allowed to cross the Croatian border even though he had all the necessary papers. After two hours of dancing and singing, all the participants left with a big smile on their faces.

I foolishly thought that leaving on Saturday would be escaping the crawling traffic on Sunday. I share this because when you are in solid bumper to bumper traffic people seem to lose any manners that they might have had. People were driving on the shoulders, driving alongside the road on the desert, they were cutting people off, honking horns and of course the hand gestures. Every once in awhile I would have to take a deep centering breath because I could feel the frustration, anger, anxiety coming into my car from the people surrounding us. Music has a way of soothing the soul when you are in these types of tense feeling situations. I love the visuals I get with the words, wings and flight. The beats in a song are like the heart beating.
