You can find a pause for thought in many places

Bishop Nic Baines was the pause for thought on the BBC Radio 2 breakfast show today. He’s always good; got a gift for communication and at ease on broadcast media. His point,  in music there is a chance to pause and reflect. He focuses on Leonard Cohen’s Album ‘Thanks for the Dance’. An album created as he was dying.

If you are looking for reflection enablers that are not words-words words, have a listen. Songs go deep-deep into the human brain. Ask anyone who has a loved one with dementia: everything else may go but the songs somehow remain.  I was with my Mum last night. She’d no clue who I was but together we sang and she knew every word. Thanks for the Dance indeed.

Midnight from Cats by the way…….
