clj May I ask a question . . . (41) RE: May I ask a question . . . 24 Aug 99

I wanted to get back to this earlier but Life intruded on my good intentions. Thanks for taking the time. I understood or agreed with some more than others and say 'AMEN' to Knock Kneed'. Also, I agree with katlaughing that the historic Celtic peoples have had a more glorious past than they realize and have a great destiny to fulfill in the near future. I feel like a great gathering is happening as we speak ...One thing I did not mention in my question is why, for me, Celtic music sounds so familiar. Like Williams' "Dives and Lazarus" I feel I have heard it before somewhere or sometime. It just sounds like it is supposed to sound. I get the same feeling with most of the older songs. This is what I really think: I believe we lived in another form before we came here and will go back. Of course, many have gone before i.e. our ancestors and I believe we associated with them. I think they taught us some things we needed to know. It is no stretch to think of Grandfathers and Grandmothers teaching us their favorite songs. I think they wanted us to look at the rolling hills and feel something familiar. I believe they wanted us to hear them in the music and remember. They want us to know we are not alone. For some people this may be overly sentimental or even preposterous, but I knew some of mine and I know they would do this if they had the power. This is why I think Celtic music has such power for some of us-it is probably the same for others and different types of music. Spirituals come readily to mind. Thanks again.
