Rhodes Scholars are selected not just for their outstanding academic achievements, but also for their character, commitment to others and to the common good, and for their potential for leadership in whatever domains their careers may lead. A Rhodes piano is an electro-mechanical piano that was described by the New York Times in 2001 as having a “shimmering, ethereal sound”. Both of these very different Rhodes are exceptional...

Music can also be a very powerful meditation, just as washing the dishes or walking can be.

This is very confusing and usually makes many of us great givers, lousy at receiving, but yet we try to be in a state of gratitude, all at the same time...
