Another Essential Harp Site!

Having gotten a reminder from Dusty Strings about their annual and not to be missed Folk Harp Symposium this coming November 6-8, I realized that I did not have a link to them on my blog....mea culpa!
They are a premier builder of not only Harps, but hammered dulcimers as well and their shop is a magical and wondrous place to visit.
Take your pocket book and be prepared to take out a second mortgage before you leave--but you won't regret it. (In the interest of public disclosure, I do not receive any monetary compensation for this suggest to you--I just know and love these folks for many a year).

Go and surround yourself with harps and harp miscellany.

Harp and be well,

Another Great Harp Therapy site

I have just added the H.A.R.P. (Help All Reach Peace) blog created by a local Harp Therapist, Christine Magnussen. Please do visit and explore. She also has other links and two sites she maintains that are well worth visiting: and

She teaches via Skype and is a dedicated healer and resource for harps and healing.


Quotes for the New Year...

Ah, how the universe offers hope! After writing of the changes and worries about our jobs at the hospital, I found these two sayings/quotes when I opened two of my calendars for the month of November.
The first comes from the wonderful Celtic Mandala Datebook by Jen Delyth:
As it was,
As it is,
As it shall be
O Thou Triune
of Grace!
With the ebb,
With flow,
O thou Triune
of grace!
With the ebb,
With the flow.

Old Scottish Blessing in the Carmina Gadelica.

The second one comes from the Perennial Grace calendar for November:
There is no better
than the heart
reaching down
and lifting people up.

John Andrew Holmer

So let's remember those in need for the coming year and with hope and grace, exercise our hearts!
