Back home after a great week in Germany & Holland. Thanks for all who organised the gigs
and all those who came.
Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet.
Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist.
And however difficult life may seem,
there is always something you can do and succeed at.
It matters that you don't just give up.
Each of you a bordered country,
Delicate and strangely made proud,
Yet thrusting perpetually under siege.
Your armed struggles for profit
Have left collars of waste upon
My shore, currents of debris upon my breast.
Yet, today I call you to my riverside,
If you will study war no more.
Come, clad in peace and I will sing the songs
The Creator gave to me when I
And the tree and stone were one.
She came this way, looking for fortune and fame.
Drawn like a moth to a flame.
To have everything she doesn't need
A poverty born out of greed
Where riches are never enough.
To pay for the longing for love
Treasures in Heaven - Paul Field
When despair grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting for their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
The Piano Blog
I'm trying to play the Piano for a while most days. Just improvising whatever comes into my head.
Just to capture a moment.
All these pieces are unedited, one take and so mistakes are included !
