Concierto de Aranjuez: II. Adagio

Trust me, take the 12 minutes to listen & watch it preferably. 

There are several pieces of classical that I have loved since rather early childhood, this is one of them. To me, all people should have the opportunity to fall in love with classical. Not every piece will strike you powerfully, but when they do, you are changed. 

To soothe & break all at once, this is my pick for today. 

Hinterland by Akurei

In this waking season as the green peels off the drear of winter this song feels exactly perfect…& tho I have so much to do I am going walking instead because I’m tired, stumbling for trees, & sun, & wind.

Held the page up

I never know, I wasn’t meant to see

Felt unfaithful

That ever-glow
I heard you called from the hinterland

Followed the path back to the sand

You had to crawling through dust

Just to reach the water
I know you’re taking over me

It’s sound like a maybe

Won’t let you take control of me

Control of me

Would it hold up

Not strong enough, the forest within me

Had to hold up

To move up on it
I heard you called from the hinterland

Followed the path back to the sand

You had to crawling through dust

Just to reach the water
I know you’re taking over me

It’s sound like a maybe

Won’t let you take control of me

Control of me
Every forest, every tree

Folded in on me

Yeah, they folded in on me

Every forest, every tree

Folded in on me

Yeah, they folded in on me
I know you’re taking over me

It’s sound like a maybe

Won’t let you take control of me

Control of me

I know you’re taking

It’s sound like a…

Things I LOVE: Canadian Music 

So, there are some of us that have such a long history in this country, our blood is so mixed & wild with snow & history; when I hear this kind of music it seriously gives me goosebumps. May this band keep rolling out electric traditional sounds. It’s long overdue that the indiginous people are heard loud & clear in every way. 

Last week I got to see the Edmonton Symphony with my youngest daughter & Wandering Thunder dance troup was preforming with them & it nearly brought me to tears seeing hoop dancing & full feathered dancing performances. POW WOW! What a sight. 

Your Light Is Lonely

Well this is just a lovely lonely…

Inner Lover by Land of Talk

Take care of me

Whose side you always on

And bring sound sleep

The wind undoes me

Pulls me past

The way you hold me brings me back
Take care of me

Whose heart you always own

And lay simply

Where I didn’t die

I free my back

The weight it loves me

Owes nothing

Feeling here is free
You light it slowly

Your light is lonely

You light it slowly

Your light is lonely

You light it slowly

On me
Take care of me

Who saw your war winds won

And stayed soundly

When alone I feel no pain

The way you hold me brings me back
You light it slowly

Your light is lonely

You light it slowly

Your light is lonely

You light it slowly

On me
Feeling here is free
