In music, rests — brief silences in the midst of the music — are as important (or at least nearly so) as the notes that surround them.

Although I read several picture books this week, none hit the perfect pitch of a Perfect Picture Book selection, so my PPBF participation is taking a little rest today.

See you next week!


  1. Enjoy the rest! In music, rests provide a break (unless if it’s an eighth rest or smaller…)!

    1. Thanks, Erik! (The rest my friend Robin suggests in the comment below yours is even shorter than an eighth!)

  2. Ahhhh……… is good.
    Rests are good.

    You’re allowed one hemidemisemiquaver rest, per week. LOL!

    Seriously, though, I’m glad you’re sticking to your guidelines for what’s perfect. That’s the best way to maintain quality.
    Stay warm!!!

    1. Robin! You wouldn’t believe how the use of the word hemidemisemiquaver made me smile! That used to be one of Mum’s choice “expletives,” as in “what in the hemidemisemiquaver did….” So I LOVED hearing it again.

      Thanks so much, for the whole comment. I’m working at that “stay warm” thing. It’s a tad tricky these days. 😉

  3. Every once in a while everyone should give themselves permission to rest. Rest is good. Please forgive me for taking too long of a rest (LOL! )and not stopping by your blog. I promise to visit again soon! 🙂

  4. Beth, I hope you don’t mind my leaving this here, but I didn’t know if you knew about it or not. Mariser did it (she’s going to send a note to Judi on FB, I think):
    She left the info on Stephel’s blog in a comment.
