In keeping with the need to be short and sweet for a few days I continue on with the theme of gratitude. I just finished watching the incredible film "Genghis Blues" for the third time, which- as it says on the cover- "no fiction film could possibly have dreamed up this wonderful story." It is the story of the late great blind blues musician Paul Pena, who discovers Tuvan throatsinging and a whole new world opens up to him. It is so joyful and heartwarming in so many ways while being poignant and bittersweet at the same time- just the way life is.
Music transcends languages and cultural barriers. It brings people together who might otherwise be worlds apart. It creates community and communicates love and brotherhood where words fail.
