On a mildly warm spring day in Minnesota (April 4, 2022), I was walking in my neighborhood with a friend. She suggested we go down a street that I’d never walked before. As we rounded the corner, at the end of a driveway was a beautiful, wooden music stand with a sign that said, “Free!” I said to my friend, “That looks like it has my name on it!”

I carried it home and set it beside my pedal harp – the woods of the stand and my pedal harp match perfectly! I’m still amazed at my good fortune and it brings a smile to my face every time I walk by it and/or use it as I practice or hold Zoom sessions.

I think the lesson is to stay alert to life’s synchroncities … really, WOW!
