Moondance

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
’Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heartstrings that play soft and low…
~Van Morrison, “Moondance,” recorded 1969

Music

“I love rock-n-roll. I think it’s an exciting art form. It’s revolutionary. Still revolutionary and it changed people. It changed their hearts. But yeah, even rock-n-roll has a lot of rubbish, really bad music.”

– Nick Cave

I do agree with what he is saying.

How Time Flies

Talk about ‘how time flies.’

Just heard a song

on the radio.

“Can I Get a Witness”

by Marvin Gaye.

The song goes

back to the ’60s.

It brought back memories,

some good, so bad, and so-so.

Yes, ‘how time flies.’

Literature

The many great gardens of the world, of literature and poetry,
of painting and music, of religion and architecture, all make the
point as clear as possible: The soul cannot thrive in the
absence of a garden. If you don’t want paradise, you are not
human; and if you are not human, you don’t have a soul.

— Thomas Moore

It Was 50 Years Ago The Beatles Appeared On The Ed Sullivan Show

It was 50 years ago, (Feb. 9, 1964) when The Beatles appeared and did their thing on the Ed Sullivan Show. I still can remember when they landed in NYC, a day after I had turned 15 years old. And then watching them on a black & white Zenith TV.

Music

Once upon a time, wasn’t singing a part of everyday life as much as talking, physical exercise, and religion? Our distant ancestors, wherever they were in this world, sang while pounding grain, paddling canoes, or walking long journeys. Can we begin to make our lives once more all of a piece? Finding the right songs and singing them over and over is a way to start. And when one person taps out a beat, while another leads into the melody, or when three people discover a harmony they never knew existed, or a crowd joins in on a chorus as though to raise the ceiling a few feet higher, then they also know there is hope for the world.

— Pete Seeger
