Take a music-bath once or twice a week for a few seasons, and you will find that it is to the soul what the water-bath is to the body.

  American writer and physician (1809-1894)

The Boston Globe’s editors and I agreed in December 2015 that Reflection for the Day will no longer appear in the newspaper, ending a 32-year run since the feature was launched by visionary Boston Globe editor Tom Winship. This website will continue to publish the Reflections every day, including most Sundays into 2016. To my many regular print readers through the years I extend deep gratitude and warm wishes for the New Year. - Tom Fitzpatrick
