A Part in the Orchestra

Reading through one of my quote of the day subscriptions, I came across this quote and thought it would be PERFECT for the blog Synergy:

"It takes generosity to discover the whole through others. If you realize you are only a violin, you can open yourself up to the world by playing your role in the concert." – Jacques Yves Cousteau, marine explorer

As a violin, I am glad to play the part I do in this orchestra. While I can only guess what instruments the rest of my team plays (Rosa - a harp, Trevor - the triangle, Steve - the cymbals, Troy - the bass drum, Felix - the clarinet), I realize that without any one of us, the team is not as strong as it is with all of us playing together.

The Power of We...All instruments in the same band, making beautiful music together. Won't you join us as we work together to unleash the Power of We? Leave a comment, tell us what you think, and help us play even more beautiful music. After all, we're missing so many parts that although the music we make is sweet, with you, it could be even sweeter!

Make it a great day!

    Phil, the orchestra is a good metaphor for team work. I have written of the connections between music and blogging before and will continue to find opportunities.

    For example, today I found a new instrument that I must have. Note: this was before I saw your posting.

    So I think it is appropriate that I have the cymbal in this orchestra. I like to make connections. I like it when the right and left hand come together.

    When the new instrument (tenori-on) is available, can I switch from the cymbal (at least for some of the time)?

    Glad you like the metaphor. You can certainly switch Steve. Any cool instrument is a good idea in my book to change to. That way, we can continually change the type of music we create to suit our needs.

    I love the metaphor Phil

    I have never played the triangle but I am happy to be guided by you on this :-)

    I have yearned for many years to play a musical instrument well and maybe I should perfect my skills with a triangle.

    It has been said I am to music what Pavaroti is to Balet :-)

    It´s a beautiful image Phil. I like the clarinet, especially the bass clarinet. Eric Dolphy played it like an angel.
