Hello to you all. I hope that you have some nice things lined up for your weekend.

A Thousand Years was originally written by and made famous by Christina Perri. It is one of the many songs I have taught to my choir.

It can be very tricky teaching a song loaded with such deep emotions to a large group of people. Inevitably, some did end up crying when they first heard the three part song arrangement I had written and published for them. For me it is about love that goes on forever, so I see it as a happy and positive song.

However, this song is very popular both at weddings and funerals as it seems to mean different things to different people, depending of course on their individual circumstances. I always think that is a sign of a good song when people can hear it and feel it fits their own life because the writer has tapped in to something which is common to everyone. In this case the song is about both love and loss.

If we are lucky, we spend much of our lives with those we love. If we are unlucky, they may live or work miles away and we miss them terribly. However, there is always the feeling of togetherness and love, despite any distance.

This is also true for many who have lost someone they love. The love doesn't stop when someone dies and so many people report that they still feel their loved ones with them. I have a close friend who lost his soulmate. He believes she is still with him and that she sends signs to him when he asks her. I hope he is right.

You are always amazing on the keys dear friend.

I love this entry dear friend. You rock!!!

Thank you so much for your kind comments. The piano is quite tricky for this one as there are some cross rhythms and the feeling of the beat changes here and there. I made the accompaniment up myself but I still made a mistake.

For me it's a great work you presented
