Flutes and Penny Whistles

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 a creative flow. Flute playing 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.
