Finding the Question
Before one can follow the question in an unfolding piece of music; the question, while possibly hazy must form. Like an islands’ mountain rising above the dark sea, this question may be laced in clouds of unknowing, yet still be sprinkled through with hope. With curiosity, trace the path of the question. Cross the bridges it may form. Open wide to what is possible. Be quiet; listen; listen, and then open some more.
Walk away or look to another question from another time. Listen if they are related. Listen to a single note. Listen to a single note played in myriad of ways. Listen to the heart’s whisper. Listen then some more. Trust the notes that arrive, though they may not have found their form. Play with them, play for them. And of course listen some more.
