Art of the Prophets

"Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us."
~ Martin Luther

". . .  David took the lyre and strummed a tune.  Saul got relief and felt better . . ." 1 Samuel 16:23

The optional theme for Photo Art Friday this week is "Portrait".
Last summer I was delighted to attend a concert in the park featuring Willis Taylor, the subject in my submission this week. Beautiful music in the great outdoors is truly a wondrous gift that brings people together and lets you step away from the cares and concerns of the day and just "be". Willis and his band did a set of golden oldies that got this 60-ish couple movin' and a-groovin' with total abandonment that warmed everyone's heart and lit up faces with ear to ear smiles. It was a toe tapping, finger snapping, hands clapping, sing along, spirit refreshing time that I will not soon forget.
