Musically Meaningful Recycling in Happy 2013

What a clever and beautiful way to make use of old instruments and musical things!
I think I was in complete awe looking at this picture and seeing remains of an old piano, drumset, saxaphone, record player, albums and more.  How many actual albums do we still own that are sitting and collecting dust that haven't been played or listened to in our own homes for a while?  Who would have thought of such a nice way to recycle them and make it meaningful? Talk about recycle. 
This amazing piece of artwork sits on one of the many walls of Skylight Gallery in the Restoration Center located at 1368 Fulton Street in Brooklyn, NY and was the exact image I needed to see to commence 2013.
Culture never dies. It continues on and regardless of who we are, we take a piece of our culture with us wherever we are and wherever we go. 2013 is a year that I can see with good things ready to happen.  But in order to do that, room must be made for it to be able to fit into the busy lives that we lead.  This image suggests that, letting out the old and letting in the new but keeping remnants of the old to make new and better images happen.

We do not have to carry around bad memories and take it into the future. No, we can let them go and allow new and better thoughts to fill our minds. We do not have to continue to collect clutter and allow it to overtake the beauty of your home. No, you can recycle them into something new.  We do not have to hold on to heart aches and pains that do not serve us well. No, we can open up the gateways to God’s love and let him fill your heart with unconditional joys.

Hopefully, 2013 will be a prosperous and joyful year for you. 2013 is going to be a great year. Happy new year to you and yours!
