Happy New Year!

Posted on : 02-01-2011 | By : Wayne Wallace | In : Life, Music


Hoping that your year is off to a great start and that you are “fired up and ready to go” for 2011.
I just wanted to share a few thoughts and wishes for all of us going forward.

“No two people on earth are alike, and it’s got to be that way in music or it isn’t music.”
-Billie Holiday

“Great music is that which penetrates the ear with facility and leaves the memory with difficulty. Magical music never leaves the memory”.
-Sir Thomas Beecham

“If the world was perfect, it wouldn’t be.”
-Yogi Berra

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”
-Oprah Winfrey

“All music is folk music. I ain’t never heard a horse sing a song.”
-Louis Armstrong

“The blues is an art of ambiguity, an assertion of the irrepressibly human over all circumstance whether created by others or by one’s own human failings. They are the only consistent art in the United States which constantly remind us of our limitations while encouraging us to see how far we can actually go. When understood in their more profound implication, they are a corrective, an attempt to draw a line upon man’s own limitless assertion.”
-Ralph Ellison

“Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance.
Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion.”
-Martha Graham

“Words make you think a thought. Music makes you feel a feeling. A song makes you feel a thought.”
-E. Yip Harburg

“Music is love in search of a word.”
-Sidone Gabrielle

“Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.”
-Hal Borland

“I’m glad I understand that while language is a gift, listening is a responsibility.”
-Nikki Giovanni

“In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.”
-Yogi Berra

My wish for you is that your life is filled with great music that overflows with joy.
For songs that make you dance and shout. Melodies that blissfully get stuck in your head.
Rhythms that take you to sacred places in your soul and happily make your heart chant and sing.
That you dwell in the reverie of a daydream and find the paradise of childhood.
Build some castles in the air and commune with the incognito muse.
and to be wondrously embraced by the unknown in all of it’s mysteries and wonders.
-Wayne Wallace
