To Sooth Your Furrowed Brow...!


It won't be long until you won't be able to find any music on the radio except the same old Christmas songs you've heard year after year.

Before we fall into that routine...I'd like to take a little time to play for you a piece that is definitely NOT a Christmas song.

To soon we'll all be caught up in the hustle and bustle of last minute gift selection and wrapping, decorating around the home and office, party planning, card addressing, menu planning...you know, all the things that seem to add up until we feel totally overwhelmed.

I want to slow that down a bit. I want to give all my friends a reason to take a break, to sit back and take a deep breath, and let yourself be transported to that other place! You know, the place that's filled with post card landscapes, silently falling snow, soothing crackling of logs in the fireplace, and the sunlight dancing off the jewelery of the slowly dripping ice cycles?

Just give a listen and see if this helps...



Now, let's get some fresh coffee, sit outside on the patio...and listen to this piece again!

Stunning!

Just stumbled across your blog whilst killing some time (stuck in the ‘great indoors’ at the moment after a minor operation). Great blog with plenty of well written and interesting pieces, hope you don’t mind and follow for a while?

Regards,

John

Thanks HermitJim - Silly Season is already in full swing here, always good to sit back and rest a spell.

Lovely - just the way to start a day of (ugh...shudder) shopping out in Mundania.

Cheers, Mister Hermit, sir!

Shade and Sweetwater,

Good Morning My Special One, Thank you so much for that beautiful piece. Amazing what talent some people have.
It is raining cats and dogs here and the wind was really bad last night, heard things crashing everywhere.
Good day to just sit and drink coffee with good friends.

Hey Diane...
It seems that mother nature allows for us to make music out of nearly everything, unlocking a little beauty if we can only find the way!

Glad you liked it...and I am glad you came by today!


Hey John...
Sorry that you are stuck inside, but right now it's probably the safest place to be!

I'm glad you found us here, and hope you can continue to come and visit! Thanks for dropping in!


Hey Rae...
Pretty unique, isn't it? Not something you see every day! Sometimes I'm really taken aback by the talent displayed by some folks!

I sure do thank you for coming by today!


Hey Momlady...
I'm really glad you liked it. Good music is always worth listening to, regardless what is used to make it!

Thank you so much for coming by today!


Hey Anon 7:44...
Seems like every year about this time, things start to get a little crazy, doesn't it?

One of the best ways to enjoy the season, I thik, is to not get caught up in the everyday silliness of it all!

Have a great day, and thank you for coming over!


Hey K...
Braver soul than I, to venture out into the world of bargains and sales and retail tomfoolery!

Think I'll stay at home and keep the coffee on! Be careful out there!

Thanks for dropping in today!


Hey JoJo...
I sure wouldn't go out in it if I didn't have to! We can just sit here and keep each other company!

Thanks, sweetie, for coming by this morning!

JoJo said...

Yes it is better to just sit with good friends on a day like this. The rain has stopped and now it is getting foggy. So lets just sit and enjoy each other today.

It´s fantastic how beautiful that sounds!
Have a great day now!

This is sooo beautiful! I watched it the first time, but the 2nd time, I just closed my eyes, leaned back, and let the music wash over me... *sigh*

HermitJim said...

Hey Christer...
It is amazing sound, isn't it? Hard to believe that it's created by wine glasses and water! Not to mention a LOT of talent!

Hey, thanks for coming by today!


Hey Tatersmama...
That's exactly what I hoped would happen. We all need some time in the day to just sit back and let ourselves be carried away by some beautiful sounds!

If I can help to find some of those sounds, then I've done my good deed for the day!

I'm sure glad you could come by today!

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now. Keep it up!
And according to this article, I totally agree with your opinion, but only this time! :)
