- Me: “Do you have a minute? “ - You: “Could you make it quick? I’m really swamped right now.” - Me: “Actually, the timing is perfect. I’d like to talk to you about the sun.” - You: “You want to talk about the weather?” - Me: “Even better, feeling the sun even if it doesn’t shine.” - You: “That sounds interesting, but what is the Shine Button?” - Me: “It’s all common sense. We all have a little light within us just waiting to shine. We can choose to make it shine. We can stock up on it to see clearly when everything seems dark. We can share our light with others who are in need or just for the joy of sharing?!” - You: “You mean, we can create our own solar energy?!” - Me: “Absolutely! We can adopt a beneficial state of mind to better live our lives, overcome obstacles and weather the storms.” This book could also be called “In Search of My Lost Light.” After growing up in Africa, Juliette Dumas lost the sun in her life and in the sky.

This book shares everything she has learned and gathered from her life experiences. It’s a pocket companion filled with inspirational bright ideas.

Musical Meaning and Expression

We talk not only of enjoying music, but of understanding it. Music is often taken to have expressive import--and in that sense to have meaning. But what does music mean, and how does it mean? Stephen Davies addresses these questions in this sophisticated and knowledgeable overview of current theories in the philosophy of music. Reviewing and criticizing the aesthetic positions of recent years, he offers a spirited explanation of his own position. Davies considers and rejects in turn the positions that music describes (like language), or depicts (like pictures), or symbolizes (in a distinctive fashion) emotions. Similarly, he resists the idea that music's expressiveness is to be explained solely as the composer's self-expression, or in terms of its power to evoke a response from the audience. Music's ability to describe emotions, he believes, is located within the music itself; it presents the aural appearance of what he calls emotion characteristics. The expressive power of music awakens emotions in the listener, and music is valued for this power although the responses are sometimes ones of sadness. Davies shows that appreciation and understanding may require more than recognition of and reaction to music's expressive character, but need not depend on formal musicological training.
