suggest an unspecified dramatic plot of some kind or other,
even though it's not in my mind at the time.

If you're writing a piece for a chamber music society,
then it's towards another point.
I won't make a final answer on that.
I think it changes with every piece.
- Peter Maxwell Davies

LOVE LETTERS TO YOURSELF
This is taken from a love letter (a gentle reminder)
I wrote to myself recently.
Live in your joy today.
Be authentic. Love yourself. First.
Love others from your own abundance.

of being into new circumstances
rather than becoming new yourself.
Embrace transformation as an opportunity.
And keep on writing love letters to yourself.

Time for my spirit to look at my friend
through the new glasses of current life experiences.
Old friends are precious.
They become even more treasured when they are wrapped
in the currentness of life experiences
and not relegated to the past in which they once lived.
- Mary Anne Radmacher
