a cello named Deowen

a Christmas cello. a present for my sister.

when we went to pick it up, it was out the back in a dilapidated storeroom. & standing there, Radiating,was this special instrument.

reminiscent of splendour. a union of architechural excellence & musical sensitivity. a grounding sound of captivating intrigue. it was a spectacle of extraordinary proportion! like this! & this!

& i couldn't help but to think, how did they not know they had such a thing of excellence within their reach. it could illuminate their lives in so many ways. i suppose seeing it in those circumstances made it so radiant to me.

though on Christams morning i saw the same look light up everyone's face.

& whenever it is played, the meaning of the name Deowen permeates my mind as i reflect on its meaning ~ a prayer to God.

    Thanks for your kind comments on my blog, am in the process of unpacking at a new (tome) little cottage on the bayside and enjoyed taking a break to visit your space.

    Will be sure to be back for a visit soon.
