I love music. I love how it revives me, moves me, uplifts and surprises me. Life without music is no life at all. I love soca and reggae, I can live without Celine Dion and most of the Top 40 but there are times that I long to hear something other. Not being in possession of a credit card or a budget sufficiently large enough to purchase C.D's, or any idea of what I wanted, I had, until recently, a bit of a dilemma. How was I to give my consciousness a little shift, for those times in the studio, when ideas are brewing, or when I want to drown out the sound of the cartoons from someone else's T.V., or when the heated, rum enhanced, discussion,
"Watch, le' me tell ya sumthin'"
flies in from the road, at the very moment when the artwork was balancing on a tightrope of completion, or what about when I just feel to sit and sip on a glass of wine and gaze across the valley?
Little did I know that help was at hand.
Free Albums Galore is an excellent blog that brings you succinct, interesting album reviews, drawing from a truly eclectic mix. I really like the format and the download is free, simple and safe, and doesn't require me to know one end of an ipod or an MP3 player, from the other.
"free classical piano music from popular composers and works".
Once again, this is a secure site, safe and easy to use but the interesting thing about this site is the pianist. Jeremiah Jones is hoping to buy his own Steinway. I hope this mention will excuse my lack of financial contribution, but for anyone else who feels the need for a personal pianist, in their own home, I can truly recommend Jeremiah's recordings.
These two fell out of the breadfruit tree today. They are temporarily housed in this little cage, to protect them from the yard fowl and the cat, but I am hoping their mother will return to claim them. The nest is not their own. They are, approximately, 2 -3" long, have black and tan wing feathers and their bills are slightly hooked. Baby ground doves perhaps? What to do? If no birds come to claim them, what and how to feed them? I like birds, but not in the house, owing to a bad experience with next door's budgie, as a child.
