Today is a damp, dull, and cloudy spring day. Being trash day, one could be ticketed for parking on the street. My van is parked on our driveway, unfortunately blocked in by my roommate’s car. Ken went to the hospital to see his mother. He rode with his sister in her car, and forgot to leave the keys to the red Chevy Aveo parked in front of my van. So, unable to drive my van, and not feeling like walking anywhere, I decide to stay home and use the new HP computer in the family room.
My plan is to check my e-mail, surf the net for a job, and play Chess. As I boot up the puter, I notice a shoe box containing CD ROM disks on the computer desk shelf. Because I need two particular disks to reformat an older dysfunctional DELL puter Ken’s family gave me, I sift through the box and come across the two CD’s I need; the applications CD and the drivers CD. I joyfully think, what a great find. I already have the operating system CD, and these gifts are the icing on the cake.
I also discover an audio CD titled; MOZART MUSICAL MASTERPIECES. Because I am a musician, and love classical music, I decide to load this CD on the computer and listen to Mozart. I see the CD graphics and song list booting up. Success! As I view the play list I click on Concerto per Clarinetto K622. When the song begins playing, I am touched by the sensitive, soothing passages reaching into my heart, my mind, my body and my soul. You see, there was havoc here at home for two days now, and this music created a perfect, peaceful, content state of well-being.
While listening to Mozart’s music, I connect to POGO an online game web-site. I log onto a Chess table. On this web-site, one can play the computer, or compete against players who elect to join your table. Anyway’s, while totally enjoying the music, a Chess player joins my table. You see, every player has a screen name. My new opponent’s screen name was unbelievably posted as Mozart! I type in my news about finding and listening to the Mozart CD on the site’s chat window. Mozart reads my comment and exclaims; “I love Mozart’s music!” I win the first game of Chess. Mozart wins the second game.
As the sun comes out I glance into the backyard looking through the sliding glass doors in the family room. I enjoy viewing the birds, the squirrels, the colorful flowers in the garden and on the trees, feeling totally blessed. I burn a copy of that MOZART MUSICAL MASTERPIECES CD, and will enjoy the music for a long time
I don’t think, wonder, or try to conceive of how or why these events occurred: Finding and playing a Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart CD, and moments later, playing Chess with a player who calls himself Mozart. I am convinced these events were orchestrated by God. Only He knows when and what we all need. I consider these gifts received today as blessings; Divine and absolutely breathless. I will always remember and enjoy the beauty of this day, the computer disks, Chess and Mozart!
THE STORY GOES ON
September 26th 2013…..
Today I must include this snippet of information that adds to my story.
While leaving the Taylor Memorial Library in Taylor MI, I noticed a few books,
CD’s and albums for sale on a table near the exit.
My eyes were drawn to a very particular CD…
You see; for sale for 25 cents, in brand new condition in its original box,
with a booklet describing his life and career was ;
a MOZART MUSICAL MASTERPIECES CD.
Of course, I did purchase that CD.
How wonderful life can be!
