following the links

I was just going through some of my links and came across this post on Jon Reid's blog...

I'm sitting here outside my daughters' “studio class,” which is like a practice piano recital performed for the other students. After an older student finished, the teacher gave his critique:

“It's not that you made a mistake; mistakes happen. But when you made the mistake, you became flustered. For the next few measures, all the notes were right but the music was gone. Get beyond the mistake. Music is not like painting. In painting, if you make a mistake, it's there forever. But in music, if you make a mistake, we forget about it because we are looking forward to what is coming next.”

good theology there...
