Wow, I'm impressed...beautiful music and beautiful writing...very thought provoking posts!I'm looking forward to more.
Thank you, you're very gracious!
Outstanding music!, with a touch of Debussy- amazing. Here's a quote from Francis Schaeffer,“…both God and man create. Both make something. The Distinction is this: God, because he is infinite, can create out of nothing by his spoken word. We, because we are finite, must create from something else that has already been created. Yet the word create is appropriate, for it suggests that what man does with what is already there is to make something new. Something that was not there before, something that began as an unmannish part of reality, is transformed by the mannishness of man and now reflects that mannishness.”
Thank you TJ,And I like to think that we in our human state can also reflect the infinite in our art form if we think of everything we are creating as having a divine source.
Listening to "Water of Life," and "Beach" I heard and felt a real connection. I think your beautiful music speaks to me because of my concern about water, the gift of life - clean, clear, sparkling water breaking in those green and aqua waves on the beach I visit as often as possible. We must help others to see, hear, smell, and touch the water as we do.
Thank you so much for your kind comments. I so appreciate your thoughts about helping others to appreciate the beauty in life by sharing our own experience of it.
