aSongForConZu #80

Nothing is more manifest than the hidden;
nothing is more obvious than the unseen.
Therefore the Master
pays attention to what is happening
within her innermost self.

“What is bestowed on us at birth
is called human nature.
The fulfilment of human nature
is called the Tao.
The cultivation of the Tao
is the deepest form of learning”.

themusicologist #0772 Etta James, Harvey Fuqua – My Heart Cries

#aSongForCon 72

I was lost in a world of dreams

Counting every star……………………….

Shining over head……it seems

I was like a shepherds boy

Searching for his lambs here and there and everywhere

You came wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, yeah ya captured me…

You and all your charms…………oh……yes you set me free

We kissed…………………………and the world was all aglow

Then my heart cried

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

i LOVE YOU SO x

ALWAYS IN my heart, Soul and ON my mind.
I Am Sorry, Please Forgive me..

#4WindsBlow

It is a strange old world and and no mistake but MUSIC unifies the

4 winds:

Heart, Soul, Body and mind and NEVER fails to deliver.

Looking back over almost a CENTURY of (predominantly), urbane musicology has taught me that.

From the earliest days of New Orleans barrel house right up to the street sounds of London, (where i was born and raised), I have listened, reflected, absorbed and learned more from the universal language than from any other source of human narrative.

I feel like rolling out a theme, starting today.

Where and for how long  the ‘wind‘ blows, nobody knows.
