“Music: Flowing Like Honey”

Music should be mellifluous, meli from the ancient word for honey, and fluous, flowing.

So Music should flow like honey: smoothly, sweetly from note to note. The Music is not in the notes themselves but in the flowing between them. The notes are merely the signposts – not the road.

A lullaby has no static notes – but the flow of the mother’s love.
