one sky music

I love the story Osho tells about the master painter commissioned by the king to paint a great work for the palace. The painter accepts the challenge on one condition: that no one be allowed to see the painting until it is finished. Finally, the day arrives when it is ready and the king and court are summoned. The painting is unveiled and it really is, without a doubt, his most magnificent life’s work. Even the painter is speechless. He turns to the king, smiles, and taking him by the hand both step together into the painting, disappear, never to be seen again. And so it is on this last day of 2014, I pause to look back one last time, acknowledging with a smile and a bow the wonderfully colorful year it has been, before stepping into the painting and what lies ahead: a New Year waiting to be discovered, lived, and celebrated. Best wishes everyone!
