Something about the blues

Divine Music
It never wears you out by making cheap demands on your sensibilities.

Instead of drawing you out into the open field of feelings where your enemies, the devil and your own imagination and the inherent vulgarity of your own corrupted nature can get at you with their blades and cut you to pieces, it draws you within where you are lulled in peace and recollection and where you find God.
You rest in Him, and He heals you with His secret wisdom
Thomas Merton
The Seven Storey Mountain
