Topic: etLux's Christmas Wish

  1. #1

    Arrow etLux's Christmas Wish

    My Friends,

    I joined all of you here in February of 2005; and
    in just a few short years that have sped right by me
    -- I've been given the wonderful gift of so many good
    friends; a great big extended family of decent, talented,
    hard-working, caring individuals who are now with me
    every single day of my life.

    To say this has profoundly influenced my life would
    be understatement. Without all of you, your help
    and your encouragement, I know I would not be writing
    the music I do. And I have built friendships and
    relationships here that I know will accompany me in
    my journey across the years to come... a source of
    deep gratitude and comfort.

    But the most miraculous thing, to me, is the community
    itself. This is a unique place in troubled times,
    with its peaceful cooperation among so many individuals.
    We come from all corners, espouse widely varied beliefs
    and politics, practice broadly different musical
    disciplines, spring from every part of society, and yet...

    We coexist in peace and harmony and civility; steadfastly
    working toward productive, worthwhile ends.

    Watching this, being a part of it, has led me to a wish,
    one I think is particularly appropriate to this season.

    I wish that we all will take this into our daily lives;
    our tolerance, our peacefulness, our willingness to
    help, our civility, our sense of community -- and make
    it not the exception but our constant habit to learn to
    extend our hands and hearts to all, both those we love
    and those we've never met.

    And most of all, I wish for... Peace.

    May I hope that all of you, my friends, will join me in
    this wish.

    Merry Christmas, my friends, and my love to all of you.

    Your experience has been echoed many times by many people here - and you are one of the reasons for this. Your posts are thoughtful, generous, and humerous (when called for). And, you are one articulate guy. You give far more than you receive; if we could all do that, the world would be a better place.

    I know I can speak for a lot us here when I say we wish you nothing but the best this Holiday season, and for a peaceful and productive New Year. And even if I can't speak for any one else, those are my small wishes for you.

    All best, good friend.

    Absolutely profound, David. I don't know what I like
    better about you--your music or your elaborate, awesome
    command of the English language. Both are such welcome
    and creative forms of enrichment.

    A Merry Christmas to our renowned composer and one of
    my favorite music critics.......

    Always the Best to you, David

    My Christmas Wish is for etLux to have a spectacular aura about.

    Feliz Navidad

    There is the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Therefore there must be a God. You either get this one or you don't - Kreeft & Tacelli
    The will to achieve is not sufficient. Some things should not be achieved. - Rimsky-Korsakov
    Musicians are just these guys that want to make music. Okay, they want to have a wonderful lifestyle, but the majority just want to make really great music. - Jon Anderson

    It is a blessing to read your post on Christmas eve, David. Reading your post while listening to DPDan's latest musical offering from the listening room, they go together so well, so perfectly. I will join with you for this wish and hope to do my part in making this wish come true. I'm also very grateful for this forum to get to know people like you and the others here, for the reasons you described so well.

    Beautifully put. The peace that you share is in your music and your postings is gratefully appreciated, David. Peace to you too. . .

    Merry Christmas and Peace to everyone. . .

    Music and humor are healthy for the soul.

    David, there's nothing more to add to what already has been written by the others--other than to add my own best wishes to theirs and express my gratitude for always being on the upbeat and sharing (all too infrequently!) your wonderful talent with us.

    Merry Christmas, friend!

    May the community continue to grow throughout the 2008 year and for each member to make further steps to whatever her or his dreams may be.

    The community and its varied and vibrant (and even not so vibrant) members have already helped me achieve mine.
