Something is in the Air I am Breathing
Moving inside,bringing forth some sing-als
on/from a different Dimension
Does Any One Else Listen-ing in ?

This Feeling of Being Alive even in the time of Trouble
is So Electrifying
Can I Get A Amen!!!

Z= Z (superscript 2) + C ( Each outflow becomes the inflow)

E= vh (Energy is proportional to the frequency of vibration)

The universe is curvy, not flat

Time returns but does not repeat

Love and gravity are the most powerful (and also the subtlest) forces in the Cosmos

Listening/watching the recordings from the 2019 Gebser Conference. Multiperspectivity, aperspectivity, voicing for the non-human … try this one on for size. The insanity is overwhelming.

An hour later, time to dot the “i”.

It feels weird, a really bad trip but kind of beautiful…liminal zones…corporate porn everywhere…remembering the way the buildings used to be…coming home after the bars closed…seeing double…kissing the concrete…becoming the twist in the mobius strip…

Hi @Ariadne, I am the same as you. Even though I made it through grade 8 ABRSM on Piano, I am completely intuitive when it comes to making music and really can improvise (with my voice) to anything. Something tells me it would be wonderful to jam with you! I am in the process of learning guitar right now so I can play the songs I am composing but the guitar teacher I found tells me I can’t do things “back to front” and I am finding this frustrating.

Yeah, I know what you mean about finding formal guitar lessons frustrating. I taught myself to read music and chords, but before that I made up chords and fingering,e tc and had to ignore all my habits and knowledge at formal lessons. The best part was I learned a bit about how to play on the higher frets, but few of the names and technicalities stuck. What helped most was the book that came with lessons: chord charts,scales, transposition, exercises in each key, etc, etc. But still, I play so freely and mostly in solitude and now, alas, rarely, too, that it has to be improve or nada. (More and more freely devotional and in the moment)
Hope you don’t give up on improv, it’s “translatable” into many modes and arenas of life/creativity!

Lyrics

Sitting here in limbo
But I know it won’t be long
Sitting here in limbo
Like a bird without a song

Well, they’re
Putting up resistance
But I know that my faith
Will lead me on

Sitting here in limbo
Waiting for the dice to roll
Sitting here in limbo
Got some time to search my soul

Well, they’re
Putting up resistance
But I know that my faith
Will lead me on

I don’t know where life will lead me
But I know where I’ve been
I can’t say what life will show me
But I know what I’ve seen

Tried my hand
At love and friendship
But all that is passed and gone
This little boy is moving on

Sitting here in limbo
Waiting for the tide to flow
Sitting here in limbo
Knowing that I have to go

Well, they’re
Putting up resistance
But I know that my faith
Will lead me on

I can’t say what life will show me
But I know what I’ve seen
I can’t say where life will lead me
But I know where I’ve been

Tried my hand
At love and friendship
But all that is passed and gone
This little boy is moving on

Sitting here in limbo
Waiting for the tide to flow
Sitting here in limbo
Knowing that I have to go

Well, they’re
Putting up resistance
But I know that my faith
Will lead me on

Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo (limbo, limbo, limbo)
Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo (limbo, limbo, limbo)
Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo (limbo, limbo, limbo)
Sitting in limbo, limbo, limbo
Sitting in limbo (limbo, limbo, limbo)

Sitting in limbo, limbo, limbo
Limbo, limbo
Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo (limbo, limbo, limbo)
Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo (limbo, limbo, limbo)

Don’t know if it’s got to be so
Don’t know if it’s got to be so (limbo, limbo, limbo, limbo))
Sitting in limbo, sitting here in limbo (limbo, limbo, limbo, limbo)

But I know we won’t belong now
I know we won’t belong (limbo, limbo, limbo, limbo)
Hey, yeah (limbo, limbo, limbo, limbo)

Ah ha ha ha ha (limbo, limbo, limbo, limbo)
Ah ah ah ah ha (limbo, limbo, limbo, limbo)

Sitting in limbo, limbo, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (limbo, limbo, limbo, limbo)

Sometimes Faith Is This & You Have too Groove with the Motion of the Emotion.Peace,Care & Blessings to All!!!

While discussing “To Not Abandon OURSELVES” and “Metaphors for Health (an adjacent possibility)”… this triumph of serenity was composed as the Second World War raged.

I consider Ralph Vaughan Williams a treasure of the 20th century…

I am returning to symphonic music during this time of crisis. Listened to this one again after many years away. A spiritual treasure. This is a gentle, soft, flight, on a magic carpet, producing lots of endorphin rushes. A very deep prayer. What a fine conductor.

Yes, love Vaughn Williams! Thanks for posting. I tend to forget to listen to music while online…when it’s actually good medicine for staying calm and yet focused, isn’t it?

First heard Lark Ascending as a young girl oh so long ago when it struck my heart awake…as I danced and danced (improv ballet) without knowing how or why …
Now, so long after, I still feel in it the pure joy of life, of birds and wind and water and everything that flies and flows!

“…struck my heart awake…”

This, in turn, is a moving turn of phrase fit for this masterful musical triumph of flight and flow. The Lark has held a special place in my heart for a long time as well. Thank you.

Listening to the Flow Between this Nervous System & the Vibration of Another…into this Heart from Their Heart…

Sometimes I’m sure there is a … Universal Nervous System… hearing and feeling and communicating… on exquisite vibrations…like this music
from Silk Road.

Sometimes I don’t know anything. Only longing.
Longing for exquisite music… to sing in me, in us, again.
