Quote of the Week

Music makes pictures and often tells stories. 
- John Denver


If words paint pictures, and a picture is worth a thousand words, then music makes them all come alive.

This was inspired by one of the pictures from Nicky and Mike at We Work for Cheese during their 30 days of photographs saga.

  2. I think of John Denver often, what a loss. What beautiful songs. I got to see him live in a relatively small venue, maybe 2000 folks in 1989.

    Nice slide show here, my dear!

  3. Nicky- Sorry Nicky, but I'm glad you liked it. When I read "What you can’t describe with words, you can feel with music" and saw the guitar, I thought of this song by John Denver. I have soooo much of his music.

    Babs- Thank you. Not only was he a great singer, he could act (Oh God!) and tell stories.

    Meleah- Thanks, glad you enjoyed it. He's my all-time favorite singer.

    Jannie- So very tragic. I was fortunate to see him 3 times, first in 1974 and last in the early 90s.

  4. I never got to see John Denver alive, but always liked his music. I liked this video very much. I'm sure he would have enjoyed, as well.

    Certainly the quote is so very very true. Funny, I just left another comment at a site about music. It's my one favorite things to do -- listen to local bands.

    This is what we tend to do on our "date nights." Most of the music we listen to is like John Denver in that it's acoustic and tells a story. Also, kind of like Jannie's music:~)

  5. Sara- I love this video too. Did you notice the otters? I used that video in a post a while back.

    John was a great entertainer, and is certainly missed. I remember my Mom called me to tell me that he'd died. That was truly a sad day.
