Soaring on the Notes

“Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.”

— Franz Kafka

The Moody Blues is one of my favorite bands from back in the day. You may think this is really very out-dated and/or strange this is so, however, one of my favorite past times has been cranking a couple of their albums up and lighting candles and opening all the doors and windows while I drink a bottle of wine. How sweet it is!
I love to sing loud and long, soaring on the notes, right along with them. I had an opportunity to see them in concert with the phil- harmonic orchestra years ago. It was amazing! Sometimes, with music of today, we forget about meaning, melody and harmony, and just the sheer beauty of a passionate voice.
Here are two videos to share with you…. a couple favorites.
If any songs have the capacity to expand the conciousness of humanity, they must be sung with heart. These songs have a way of connecting us to outer and inner being, and at the same time allowing us to fully experience the awesome nature of the infinite spiritual realm that surrrounds us.

      Yes,…maybe I will post it! I just have issues with theives…you know? Anyway,….it promises to be a great story. Very good I think…not trying to be biased. It came to me in the dream like watching a movie already filmed. It even starred Keira Knightly as one of the supporting characters/actresses. weird, right? The whole thing just played from beginning to end in my head and I woke up thinking, “Damn! that makes for an awesome book and possibly a movie”. It might go down similar to “Legends of the Fall”. How I know it will be good? I can’t figure a title for it. usually my best works, I can never title. I get the meat and potatoes without the garnish…hahaha….MAybe i will ask readers for their input on the title once it is done.
      Look to the sky!
      love, Tamara

    Maybe you should jot down some of the important points while it’s still in there. lol
    Dreams can be slippery!

    🙂 Have a most wonderful night!
