If Walls Could Listen

Do you love your home with your ears? Eyes always seem to get the attention when decorating. So, today I took the time to update my Pandora list with these artists. They capture the mood, season, and coziness I am trying to bring into these walls. Like coffee for the ears. Just add fiddles and Celtic cream.

When researching some of the artists I came upon this dance song written by a Shaker, Elder Joseph, who was born in 1797.

"Simple Gifts"

'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,

'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,

And find ourselves in the place just right,

'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gain'd,

To bow and bend we shan't be asham'd,

To turn, turn will be our delight,

Till by turning, turning we come out right.
