Your Hands 12-26-15

 

When I touch your hands

that held three baby boys

that held me in the times I didn't want to stay

on an Earth that felt so strange

a stranger in a strange land

 but your hands

 

your hands

I understood

as something good

in the war that men have made

in the cities screaming loud

with the owners mean and proud

 

there was your hands

 

and a laughter that sprang

from a place not reacting

but acting from a source

where love is the force

that forces no one

 

to slavery, to sorrow

to fear of tomorrow

 

but tends with gentle hands

to the innocent hearts

of the world

new visions

21st Century music

nature - human and otherwise

pondering universal energy as it appears through musical instruments

the strength of beauty

the boredom of brutality

the creating dance of love

Also check out the video page as I have added many live in studio vocal videos as well as nature videos for the instrumental songs.

'Global Blending' is getting thousands of listens on Spotify and is fortunately creating downloads. Thanks a lot!

My most recent album is "Quiet Times". An instrumental collection in the style of "Moonlight On Water" and Dreams of Sedona", Give it a listen.

And definitely check out the video "Storm Coming" on the video page. I've been doing a lot of time lapse photography this year and this has some breathtaking images of the monsoon season here in Sedona AZ.

A feeling for music

I don't know whether I spoke first or sang first as a little boy. My earliest memories have a soundtrack. I wrote my first songs before I could play an instrument.

When I started playing piano, then guitar, I wanted, more than learning note for note the songs I'd loved, to create what I'd never heard before.

Certainly many songs come out sounding like one genre or another, but many also didn't fit neatly into any category. I called my first label "No Categories", but decided I didn't want to have my label say "no".

Now it's "Futurewave", but in the present, whenever I pick up a guitar or sit at the keyboard, the wonder and mystery of where music comes from is always there.

And it's always fresh. Reaching onto the future.
