Mornings, May 7 - 11

The Jesuits say if you give them a child until the age of seven, he or she is theirs forever.   

Where - and to whom - do you belong?  

This past week has given me time to return to the places I’ve loved since childhood, the places where I feel most at home: in the woods, in the garden, and singing in a choir.  I’ve had a wonderful vacation following my muse and enjoying Luna Galassini in the mornings on Classical 91.5.

This week, you’ll have a chance to consider the value of a place you treasure – your public radio station.  Our May fund drive starts this weekend, and if you’re already a supporter, thank you.  Thank you also for silently (or better yet, loudly) encouraging your friends and colleagues to act on their generous impulses.

We belong to music, and music belongs to us.  We’re in this beautiful world together.  Thank you for your support.

May 9th selection aft.G.Keillor's Writer's Almanac

Brenda,
I enjoyed hearing "On Eagles Wings" this morning as the follow-up to Garrison Keillor's poetry reading on the Writers Almanac.It was a thoughtful and an imaginative selection.I'm continually impressed with your choice of music as I listen to the Morning Program day to day. Certainly,you must devote a good deal of time and effort on each program. Thanks for doing such a wonderful job each morning.
Best regards,
Bruce Kowiak

To whom do I belong?

Simple answer - ME!

However, that simple answer covers a lot of background, too. Growing up in a small town in New York State, moving to a larger city, getting married and moving to an even larger city. Driving. Classical music, always. Science Fiction reading (and now writing), singing in various choruses, Air Force (this is NOT an exhaustive list). Well, everything left its mark and is a part of who I am. But the controlling factor is still me.

Some of my background is negative - I don't want to be that. Other is positive, as in I actively seek to be like that. And some of it is unconscious until I see it happening, like behavioral mannerisms that my father had. I made a conscious effort starting at age 19 to be something other than what I was, and became an extrovert and not afraid to meet people. That was the beginning of taking charge of my personality and really becoming me. It's still continuing, and I'm 66, now.
