HEAR AND NOW
* Spider Webs at Sunrise
I'm getting a title and writing it down: Hear and Now.
Next I picture scenes from Walt Disney's Fantasia, musical pictures in (gasp) hand drawn and painted cartoons. I "see" scenes of ancient Greek myths (Pastoral Symphony by Beethoven's 6th) and the dinosaur age (Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky). I pause and "watch" a dinosaur scene in my imagination as the frequencies change. Suddenly, everyone, big and small, pauses and raise heads to listen. The Thunder Lizard is coming as lightening flashes! I sense the reptilian intuition of watchful waiting and decision making.
I picture my cats, intuitive creatures, signalling with eyes, posture, gestures and voice that an unfamiliar cat is in their yard. ** The animal is Fully Present at all times.
Meditation Music, guided or toned, mantra and more.
I let this rest in draft form.
Calling with restful intent "suddenly" over a short span of days, I receive a program to watch:
*** Resounding Earth, frequencies from many cultures created with bells, Tibetan bowls, and much more into a musical composition, a harmony and balance in 4 parts.
Pigments of Joy
Sacred Rainbow and Beyond
I ponder the wonder and harmony of light, color and music in a cosmic blend.
The Color of Music
**** Then I remember (in the middle of the night) the book by Daniel Tammet, Born on a Blue Day.
"I was born on a Wednesday and Wednesdays are always Blue."
The next day My daughter calls and tells me excitedly about attending a reading of Beowulf and meeting Benjamin Bagby. He is also an expert in musical modes and has a harp tuned to the Pythagorean 5th, "the true 5th."
Later I open LinkedIn and read:
+ The Sonic Mysticism of Hindu Mythology by Jayanta Choudhury. Raga means "color." "Color the mind in various shades of emotions." The path to higher consciousness is musical.
"Explore your core consciousness," Deepak Chopra, M.D.

Third Coast Percussion, Musical Group in Chicago performs Resounding Earth.
Resounding Earth documentary about the making of the piece aired on PBS (USA) on Oct 25, 3013. I am reminded of John Cage's musical work and play.
