“music and cats”


“There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life – music and cats.” –Albert Schweitzer, physician/Nobel Laureate.

Whenever I’m feeling low, I feel the touch of my kitty’s paw and then hear her purr, and in no time at all I feel as though there is a place of goodness and love, and it’s right here where I’m sitting.  She can make life feel worth living again.

Music has a different but similar effect.  Whether it’s a danceable tune by ABBA or it’s Paul Simon singing about bouncing into Graceland, I start to move, and soon I realize that although there is misery in the world, right here and right now I can still dance.

How about you?  What lifts you up out of life’s miseries?
