at the concert
These four standing together at the blues concert, caught my eye. I felt a kinship with them as I could tell by their somber, yet appreciative expressions that they too, were relating to the message of the singer and her song. Blues music is soul music. And who of us cannot relate to pain. Good blues music, however, takes us beyond the pain to a place of acceptance and humility; much like the powerful words of the serenity prayer:
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
