another instrumental piece. https://youtu.be/Kz2mJ6BBVLU?list=RDKz2mJ6BBVLU    shout out to Michele!  i am glad you liked the Love Is Blue,    i always loved that song, especially towards the end, when the harpsicord unwinds , and it gets really swingy.   But,  i didnt make that video.I wasnt even planning on posting it, either, but the sound was just so shining and clear! My own turntable is the children's old school low tech kind that fits inside of a little suitcase.  Covered with orange leatherette .  lol. And the records i have are so scratchy and dirty, but i dont mind.  i like them that way.                               peace & love

Unk p,

I am howling.  Now that's more like it.  My first stereo of my own was fold up plastic suitcase. I still have it and a slightly improved 80s version. My only surviving needles match yours! But I think I still have John Denver's first record under his performance moniker...if I want to subject it to them which i have not tried recently. 

I did wonder about that rather advanced videography 😉 Phew. 

PS

I think Daniel Avery's "Diminuendo" altered my brain waves permanently.  It did get my energies moving!

Not used to...what is this kind of music called? Techno something? 

Love, light, and healing prayers,
💜 MIchele

Love, light, and healing prayers,

This is an original song by Gaelynn Lea entitled "Someday We'll Linger in the Sun". Gaelynn Lea is a musician and public speaker from Duluth, MN. The layers of sound in this song were created by live looping, using only a JamMan Express Looper Pedal, an Orange Microamp and Gaelynn's violin. Gaelynn Lea has been playing violin for over twenty years and performing in Northern Minnesota and Wisconsin since 2006. She has a congenital disability called Osteogenesis Imperfecta (Brittle Bones Disease) and because of her shortened limbs she plays her violin in an upright position like a tiny cello. Gaelynn is passionate about disability advocacy and authentic living and often does public speaking engagements on these topics. https://youtu.be/jb1oCjiIu9M

do you ever hear a distant, rusty old swingset,  when you are damn well supposed to be in class?  https://youtu.be/XHJ5qleyzyk     do lazy lovers send you Red Roses with Babies Breath, but all you really wanted  were Opium Poppies or Venus Fly-traps or Love-in-a Puffs or Forget-Me-Nots or Voo-Doo Lillies or  Angels Trumpets or 4 Leaf Clovers or Triliums or 2-Sided Peonies or Sea Anemonies?

(3 different ways to) Walk On By:  like a Goddess of the very Air https://youtu.be/wjYAsVfJE8c   or 2, like one Beach Boy https://youtu.be/qkIw6SMt2bs , or like we do down in houston, slow the record down back it up a minute Isaac Hayes is on and sun is so hot  thin mint towers and cough syrup bayous spilling over your flip flops stick to the sidewalk a little as you slowly walk on by https://youtu.be/qiNKSIX37f8

Unk P,

Decidedly, a rusty old swing set and the music we swing by!

You obviously are musically gifted energetically in hearing the unwritten words and feelings within music.

Synchronistically, I'd recently listened to "Silencium" (your link being to "Silentium" spelled with t--a different song).

And after Gaelynn Leas's "Someday..." song with its amazing erhu sounding violin at the beginning, (my daughter studied violin as a young girl and we discovered the erhu in that process).

I went on to listen to her talking about "Amazing Grace" and how when she was singing it to her grandfather in hospice after his not haven spoken in days, how he began to softly join in.

So moving to even think about.

It brought back to her his once saying that music is one of the first things babies respond to--and one of the dying's last.

That was my connecting link to the last song link I'd saved for myself.

The opening song for the BBC's 21 seasons series of "Silent Witness". A crime series basically about life and death in its most raw forms contrasted with this very ethereal opening song written by John Harle titled "Silencium", and once again with violins.

AND synchronistically, there are fractal images at both the beginning and the end in this youtube version. (Make sure beginning arrow is at very beginning).

Lovely, ethereal and deeply moving, I had to really search to find the original version with lyrics throughout instead of the truncated version that the producers switched to by the last 21st season.  Apparently, that infuriated music fans and made a great stir in the UK.

Ah, the powers of music!

Link to lyrical version

The lyrics if anyyone wonders are:

Silence and sleep
Like fields
Of amaranth lie

Very old are the woods
And the buds that break
Out of the brier's boughs
When March winds wake

So old with their beauty are
Oh no man knows
Through what wild centuries
Roves back the rose

Very old are the brooks
And the rills that rise
Where snow sleeps cold
Beneath the azure skies

Sing such a history of come and gone
Sing such a history of come and gone
Of come and gone

Silence and sleep
Like fields
Of amaranth lie

Very old are the woods
And the buds that break
Out of the brier's boughs
When March winds wake

Very old are we men
Our dreams are tales
Told in dim Eden
By Eve's nightingales

Very old are the brooks
And the rills that rise
Where snow sleeps cold
Beneath the azure skies

Sing such a history of come and gone
Sing such a history of come and gone
Come and gone, come and gone
Sing such a history of come and gone
Sing such a history of come and gone
Sing such a history of come and gone
Of come and gone

We wake and whisper a while
But the day gone by

Silence and sleep
Like fields
Of amaranth lie

Come and gone

 

Lovely music of Silencium.

 

 

 

 

Love, light, and healing prayers,
💜 MIchele

I've loved this woman's music for more than 15 years, and her words often move me to think and feel and reflect (and cry!). I'm so glad she is finally getting the credit she deserves. However, I've thought for years that she's touching the front edge of the new consciousness, and her appeal crosses rural and urban, folk and country and Americana and rock. She's amazing, and this song feels like an anthem for the world, moving forward:

How long will my guitar gently weep?  Until we replace weeping with compassion.

Subscribe to Netflix?  If so, I highly recommend "And Breathe Normally," a well done, powerful Icelandic film directed by Isold Uggadottir (2018) that, among several important and topical messages, "reminds us of the power we possess, even when we think we’re helpless."

Hello to all of my light working friends:

I have been listening to the song ‘Bridge Over Trouble Waters’ by Simon and Garfunkel a lot these last few months. Maybe we are all each other’s bridge. If you need a friend I’m sailing right behind ...

Good morning everyone.  It's been a while since I last posted.  You know "lot's of things to do, little time to do it..."  I've been thinking about the Heart Warrior class and I'm trying to practice what I learn.  It is making me think, a lot and in a very good way.

Today, I made the mistake to open the TV, and of course, it was on CNN.  Old habits are difficult to change, but there is hope.  .  But God/Spirit was looking out for me.  The story that was on was inspiring and I wanted to share it with you because it made me happy.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/01/us/boy-autism-skateboard-birthday-trnd/index.html

There is a French Canadian song called "Happy People have no Stories".  Well, there is hope yet!  We just have to look for them. Have a great day everyone!

The Nubian Queen; Kandaka; Alaa Salah is the 22 year old engineering student who has been leading anti-government protests in the Sudan.  I'm enthralled with her energy; it reminds me so much of AOC.  Her chant inspires and whirls in transformative power.  This is precisely what is needed now everywhere!  Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIvJqI3XCRQ

I've been feeling quite distressed and depressed about where our country is  headed, and to the best of my ability, I've been limiting some of my news watching.  Since some of you sound as concerned and down as I have been, I want to share an experience I had this afternoon.  I think it's a gentle message from the Universe about perspective and the power of the spirit.

I live in a large county of a major metropolitan area.  This afternoon while I was on my way home, waiting at a light to cross a major highway, I suddenly saw this gaggle of geese sauntering along the middle of that highway, s-l-o-w-l-y crossing over to the other side of that big road.  It appeared to be a mamma followed by her goslings.  Traffic came to a halt.  Big trucks and cars initially honked their horns, but the little guys & gals took their own sweet time.  I saw the confident power in Mamma's stride -- she was on a mission, with her babies in tow.  Curiously everyone suddenly stopped honking at one time, and things became very quiet while the geese made their way across.   I mean, imagine!  All of this noisy traffic, these powerful, big moving machines, and nothing could deter those geese from making their way.  In those moments  the geese held the power, and we all respected that.  It felt very peaceful, as if time had stopped.  I honestly believe that time did stop.

The mystery is, to the best of my knowledge, there is no body of water that is close by.  Where did the geese come from?

I felt my heart soften.  I understood the power of the universe.  And I laughed the entire way home.
