:Jumping in place" ---> enthusiasm

Which hand should I hold the baton in? - ChoralNet
Pat sent this along for our viewing pleasure.  May I point out that 
enthusiasm  comes from the Greek root. . ev theou =  in God !  ;-)
So there you have it. . . "holy jumping". . .LOL

Justin. . .you see. . Gary just doesn't understand that jumping up 'n 
down in one place with great enthusiasm can produce such beautiful
results.  Keep it up.        Patrick





Justin, this little guy has more
life in his whole body than most
conductors. He is a very good
musician. I would always do the
same many years ago. He is more
than beautiful. Love our young souls for they show us real Love.

That kid is phenomenal. . .he feels every bit of the music. .and the crescendos. . .that's a lil guy fully alive. . .I hope he never loses and becomes "acculturated". .that is, boring and less than alive!

As Sri Chinmoy put it :

"To silence enthusiasm
At any moment
Is absolutely wrong."

The kid understands exactly what he's doing, which surprised me. Could be a sign of things to come, perhaps. A hint of genius.

Correctamente, Mr. Kelly, I think you are right on. . . ;-)

Isn't he totally awesome. . .I am lost for words...well, almost. . lol


Justin, Jim, Richard,and Gary,
the four of you put the right
words in and said it very well,
if he doesn't become a child
prodigy, there is something
not right. You can just feel
his heart and soul showing
his love of music and life.
