A freak blizzard last Sunday combined with a power outage made for good napping in the dusky light as the wind howled outside.


As I lay cuddled under a warm quilt I had the time to let my thoughts go and watch the visions of strange objects float by as if upon a slow running river - "things" kept floating and drifting on by. 


Here is what it sounded like outside that day, though it was much louder than the recording. No need to listen to the entire length of the recording. However if you listen closely, sometimes you might here a distant chorus or ethereal voices.

Maybe instead, this next recording will help bring on the belated Spring, and soon the Summer:

I love the "Sound of Insects." Actually reminds me of summer nights here. I find the rhythm of various insects soothing and even enchanting at times.


I happened upon this Monastic chant circa 12th and 13 century. I am particularly fond of the notes in chant number one which runs through 3:20. I've not listened to the rest of the chants yet, but did go beyond 3:20 mark for a while and so far am only drawn to the 1st chant thus far. Though I have no idea what they are singing.

Yes!  Through and through.  That reminds me of the variation of luxurious chant-music that we used to play by  the modern group whom I recall were called The Gregorians.


Perhaps through it all, what many search for is  not just their harmonica, but the following:



 "Live from 1971."


"Neil Young - Heart Of Gold"

Oh yeah, searching for a heart of gold is classic. Another of Neil Young's songs was a favorite of mine. Seems Neil did a bit of searching through a desert on...

The words are hard for me to comprehend--very existential !


Still, it is enchanting:  Some sort of quality that I cannot yet put my finger on.
