This week marks the start of a new project for Mr F, which is a huge & terrifying blessing. One in which he gets to do what he was made for, and contribute to music making and community, and one which means over the next year or two he will be travelling frequently to far away places. I have recently started reading ‘Letters to a young poet’ by Rainer Maria Rilke, and as we begin this new season his words resonate and wrap a blanket around me, around us. For those of you who fear love is fragile, may you also find warmth and comfort under them.
“Believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance
and have faith that in this love there is a strength and blessing
so large you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it”
Rainer Maria Rilke
