Peace Chant, Recent Essays, and the Forest
Started working on this over a year ago. At that time I posted the initial version on YouTube. I think it is finished now. It's imagined destiny is to be sung on a Peace March. Or a rally, or a small group meeting, or for personal reflection and meditation. Or maybe it is not destined for anything other than my personal use, which is fine. I do not have a voice recording of it, but am posting below the pdf of printed music, the MuseScore file, a midi file, and an mp3 of the melodies and rhythms.
Next, the recent essays. Wow. I don't have the opportunity these days to read them all, but I have to say that essays and comments this past week have been through the roof regarding insight and personal responses to present-day conditions.
Lastly, the forest. My 16 year old son just recently said to me, "I think I now understand the saying 'you don't see the forest for the trees' . . . it means that you don't see the big picture, right?"
We, here at c99, see the forest. And IMO, we are responding appropriately to the forest. We are spending more time with family. We are reaching out to others. We are mindful of what is true. We do what we can, when we can.
Peace to you all this day.
