24 thoughts on “I Want to Sing”

  1. This gets me to pondering, Tiny.
    I take it this writer saying he wants to sing for pure joy, no matter what it sounds like. But sometimes in our self-deceiving heart there can arise a desire that “I want others to like the way I sing no matter what it sounds like.” Now I’m pondering the difference between those two feelings from this angle: Wherever possible, there is some merit in changing your tune if it constantly grates on others.
    (hanks for the great quote and for getting my mental wheels turning this morning. Someone once told me I’m very analytical. Now you can observe this, too.:) )

    1. That IS a very analytical interpretation, Christine! I thought bird song would never grate on others, but agree that people’s tone certainly could 🙂

      1. Really, i love the sound of most birds. However, I’ll send you some magpies. 🙂 Their squawks sound remarkably like a bunch of pigs grunting.
        But they can’t help it or change their tune. We sometimes could if we tried. We may not want to try, though. Then it becomes a problem. That’s the way my mind was working.

  2. During my cool down walk after yesterday’s fun, Stevie Nicks came on with her infectious Rhiannon. I casually looked around to make sure no one was within earshot and…I sang along to the music coming through my earbuds. 🙂

    1. Singing is good! And I think this little quote is about expression as well, in a wider sense. My weekend was great and relaxing. Thanks for your message, my friend ❤

  3. Four songs flooded into my head as I read Rumi:

    * Sing . . . sing a song.
    * I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.
    * Make your own kind of music. Sing your own special song.
    * If you want to sing out, sing out. If you want to be free, be free.

    Sing on, Sister!
