The opening piece is called “Morning” and you can almost see the sun slowly rising from the horizon, bringing warmth to the trees and flowers and flooding the world with light. My dear departed elder sister, who was also a very gentle and damaged soul loved it. Agit8ed so pleased it resonates with you, Oh, and I forgot that this section ends in the Hall of the Mountain King”. The King of course being a Troll (Scandinavian Chapter riding Harley Davidsons..) I believe we have (lurking/skulking in the background somewhere) our very own Courtier Troll; an enthusiastic member of the NRA and who speaks his own particular brand of Norse.. 😉 David, As you know (decent) music soothes the savage breast… All I need now is one of Troll’s American folk or C&W numbers. But not “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”.. 🙂 Beautiful David. May I post a couple of Friday suggestions myself; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41-qOqzQE8I Man, am I ever out step. I’ve spent the past seven weeks of summer break with hordes of teenagers camped out in my house. Their music has become the recent background sound to my daily life, so from their playlist, I’ve developed a taste for the following songs. Radioactive – Imagine Dragons Blurred Lines – Robin Thicke Starships – Nicki Minaj (she’s kinda nasty) All The Right Moves – One Republic (and everything else they’ve done, this band is big with my kids) The A Team- Ed Sheeran Young & Beautiful- Lana Del Rey Austin temps have reached our summer average of 100+ degree days, so we spend most of our time on the water or tucked away indoors. I’ve found the girls hanging about don’t mind pushing the vacuum or wielding a mop if open up my shoe collection and turn on their favorite tunes. I realize that sounds totally misogynistic. In my defense, the kitchen & bathrooms tend to be quickly cleaned by the boys if I promise to cook large platters of food. //I’ve spent the past seven weeks of summer break with hordes of teenagers camped out in my house// My eldest was 13 this week, and just last night he had his first sleep-over party here. A real wild bunch, I must say. We had a room arranged for the girls to sleep in and another for the boys. They partied, laughed and danced all evening like 20 yr olds, and even around 1 a.m. last night, we practically had to use violence to get the sexes to their respective rooms. Then started a series of calling, knocking on the wall and various other signals before, around 3 a.m., one of the girls tip-toed out of her room and into the boys’. Fortunately my ever-vigilant wife had stayed up and nabbed her on the spot. I dread to think what’s going to happen when alcohol comes into the mix. Comments are closed.
