Flutes

Flutes go way back. Genesis 4:21 says that Jubal was the father of the harp and the pipe. A flute found in a cave in Germany made from a bird bone was at the same layer as mammoth bones.

Flutes take me on mini vacations. They hook me up instantly to creative flowing beauty. It resets me, calms me, makes me sing and dance inside. And suddenly I am not playing the flute but the flute is playing me. Sometimes through my spirit and soul. I hear the music right before I play it. Playing has become effortless. It is just wonderful and refreshing.
