Philadelphia French hornist, and St. James School friend, Angela Cordell Bilger talks about her experience with life, the school and it’s music program.
As I sit in my comfy rocker in the nursery with our seven-week-old Andreas, I have alot of time to think about what I would like for him in his life. Of course, we all want our children to be happy and to have their needs not only met, but for them to flourish in every way. I am no different. I think that more than anything, I want for Andreas to find something in his life – or many things in his life, but at least one thing – that feeds his spirit and nurtures his soul. I want him to feel not just happy (which is a feeling that can come and go), but an underlying, enduring joy that doesn’t depend on the circumstances of the moment. I wish for his life to be one that is filled with meaningful relationships and for him to have a feeling of integration into the world around him. I want for him to have the sense that he can contribute something special, and to have something that fuels his imagination and energy. I want for him to have a sense of possibility.
