     Glen Travis Campbell
    (April 22, 1936 – August 8, 2017)
    I remember when I was eight or nine years old
    Playing my 45s and LPs of Glen Campbell
    I still remember singing along to
    Wichita Lineman, Galveston, and Gentle on My Mind
    It brings back memories of the house we lived in then
    Glen was quite the hero to us
    He was raised in the same church we went to
    And he was from Arkansas like we were
    He was a favorite son
     
    I had another song planned for today
    But then I saw the news that Glen had passed away
      
    To honor Glen
    I thought I'd play my favorite song of his
      
    Glen Campbell
    Wichita Lineman
    from The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour

    ~*~

    Cease trying to work everything out with your minds. 
    It will get you nowhere. 
    Live by intuition and inspiration
    and let your whole life be Revelation.

    ~Eileen Caddy
       
    ~*~
         
    The creative is the place
    where no one else has ever been. 
    You have to leave the city of your comfort
    and go into the wilderness of your intuition. 
    What you'll discover will be wonderful. 
    What you'll discover is yourself.

    ~Alan Alda
     
    ~*~

    There is a wise being living inside of you.  It is your intuitive self.
    Focus your awareness into a deep place in your body, a place
    where your "gut feelings" reside.  You can communicate with it by
    silently talking to it, making requests, or asking questions. Then
    relax, don't think too hard with your mind, and be open to
    receiving answers.  They are usually very simple and relate to
    the present moment, not the past or the future, and they feel right.

    ~Shakti Gawain

    Daphnis et Chloé (detail) by François-Louis Français-Paysage
      
     ORGASMIC!!!!
     
    I Strongly Recommend listening to this
    It is only about 5 minutes long

     
    A suite is a collection of short musical pieces
    which can be played one after another.
     
    Today we will hear the first section from Suite #2 of
    Ravel's music to the ballet, Daphnis et Chloé
    Suite #2 is the music to the last part of the ballet
        
    The story concerns the love between 
    the goatherd Daphnis and the shepherdess Chloé.
          
    "The story line of the ballet is based on the ancient Greek writer Longus' (200 AD) pastoral tale of the passion that grows between Daphnis and Chloe, two foundlings raised by shepherds and goatherds on the island of Lesbos. Part One introduces Daphnis and Chloe, who become fast friends. Daphnis teaches Chloe to play the pan-pipes; the two fall in love; Chloe is abducted by pirates; Daphnis prays to the god Pan for assistance." (Source) Daphis gets Chloe back and everyone dances, celebrating their reunion.
     
    Daphnis et Chloé Suite #2 is made up of three pieces but we will only hear the first one:
     
    1. Lever du jour (Daybreak) - As day breaks, Daphnis and Chloé are reunited. An old shepherd, Lammon, explains that Pan helped them in order to honor his own love for the nymph, Syrinx.
     
    Note: The nymph, Syrinx, was a follower of Artemis, known for her chastity. Pursued by the amorous Greek god Pan, she ran to a river's edge and asked for assistance from the river nymphs. In answer, she was transformed into hollow water reeds that made a haunting sound when the god's frustrated breath blew across them. Pan cut the reeds to fashion the first set of pan pipes, which were thenceforth known as a syrinx.(Wikipedia)
           
    ~*~
      
    "Lever du jour" (Daybreak)
    This music is absolutely the most beautiful
    Musical painting of sunrise I've ever heard
       
    Setting the Scene:
    It is dawn - the twilight before the sunrise
    We first hear the forest stream - then
    We feel the burgeoning tension of anticipation
    As the birds and animals of the forest awaken
    And then the glorious sunlight breaks across the land
    Ecstasy
    It is also a gorgeous musical expression of orgasm
    Truly - listen to it and hear
    Listen to the repeat of the Sunrise motif
    It builds and builds into a huge, explosive climax
    Da Da Dee Da -
    Da Da Dee Da -
    DA DA DEE DA -
    DA DA BANG!
    (Trains go into Tunnels as Fireworks Explode across the Skies)
    :  )
          
    ~*~
      
    I really wish this performance included the other two sections
    But - oh well
      
    I chose this performance because
    It's Live, it's Excellent, has High Quality Audio
    And mainly because they used a CHORUS!
    Most performances of this piece do not use a Chorus
    (Because of the expense of paying the singers)
    Even though Ravel adamantly insisted on it
    And I agree - it is even more magical with the "wordless" Chorus
      
    If this is your first time listening to this music
    I suggest listening to it at least twice
    (The more the better)
    It's only about 5 minutes long
      
    First time, listen while watching the orchestra
    Second time, listen with your eyes closed
    Move your hands to it
    Really embrace it - immerse yourself in it

    So Headphones on
    Click Play
    Sit back - Relax
    Eyes Closed (2nd time through)
    REVEL IN THE ECSTASY

    "Invite the Sacred to participate in your joy in little things, as well as in your agony over the great ones. There are as many miracles to be seen through a microscope as through a telescope. Start with little things seen through the magnifying glass of wonder, and just as a magnifying glass can focus the sunlight into a burning beam that can set a leaf aflame, so can your focused wonder set you ablaze with insight. Find the light in each other and just fan it."

    "Magic is a sudden opening of the mind to the wonder of existence. It is a sense that there is much more to life than we usually recognize; that we do not have to be confined by the limited views that our family, our society, or our own habitual thoughts impose on us; that life contains many dimensions, depths, textures, and meanings extending far beyond our familiar beliefs and concepts."

    BEAUTIFUL!!!
       
    I Highly Recommend listening to this music
    It's only 6 and half minutes long

      
    Last Thursday we listened to"Daybreak"from
    Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe Suite #2
    Today we will listen to the second section
    Pantomime (The Love of Pan and Syrinx)
    It has what is regarded by many as
    The greatest flute solo in all of music

    It starts at the  2:06 minute mark
    It truly is amazing
    After the solo around the 4:56 minute mark

    Starts a most beautiful
    LUSH
    Section of music, it is LUSH
    Best word I can come up with to describe it
      
    I hope you will listen to this music
    Tomorrow we will listen to the finale

      
    Maurice Ravel
    Pantomime (Les amours de Pan et Syrinx)
    from Daphnis et Chloe Suite #2
