Q is for quiet

Hello and good morning, -afternoon, -evening, dear people who participate is this wonderful photomeme, which is a joy to me, week after week, after week. Always curious to what everyone of you comes up with.

 This week's challenging letter is Q. The word I've chosen this time is "QUIET". On the photo you see Nigel Brown. He is a Dutch performing artist and for the past 4 years part of the cast of JEANS. 25 September 2015 started the new season.

At this particular moment in the show... he stands on stage all by himself with 1 of the 4 musicians behind him and together they perform the Jeans-version of "Bridge over Troubled Water" which is the most 'special' moment in this new show, not only for me but for many other people to, other cast- & crew members and fans as well.

I 'hear' you thinking: "why?" The 30th of July a very dear friend of mine passed away and on his funeral this song was played. That friend of mine has worked for JEANS since 1997... so almost all of JEANS-related people know (of) him, worked with him and loved him, maybe even more than I did and still do. This season, in every show, Nigel sings that song ... which most of the times makes me cry, of course. But still... the most beautiful part of this seasons show for me!

Quiet... because we all miss that friend... Quiet... in prayers and talks to remember him ... Quiet... listening, feeling Nigel's (& mine) love for that special friend, none of us will ever forget. Quiet... in gratitude for having known... and love him. Wishing you many of those special 'quiet'-moments to remember and cherish the good things and people in your life! ♫ M e l ☺ d y ♫

    My writing team and I use prompts to create various things. This one was one of the prompts we used to create a chapter in our WIP novel. I hope it's suitable.
