Greetings, Please consider "Coyote Loco". Instrumental music that grows on you. I always prefer 9th chord leads back to the root rather than 7th chords, 9th chords always seem so invincible, even though they're a bit off. This song comes from the land of Sage Brush and Ponderosa Pines.
I am a soul at rest. I lived in a time before Remus was born. I was pretty much a slave. I was also a musician. Valens was the master of the land. He was a kind master and wealthy beyond imagination. Valens had one son Heros and he was to be married. I wrote songs for the wedding and Valens liked them. Those songs changed my life. Valens bestowed on me the entire wedding celebration. He wanted a procession, a parade for the newly weds. I sent out to other lands for all of the finest musical arts experts. Trumpeters, singers, drummers, dancers, acrobats, athletes, people who just looked good: and soldiers. Their campsites filled the Rufus valley. Everyone was marching and dancing as one to the music. Craftsmen built large carryalls to catch the eye. Together we designed the massive parade, practiced for two vechis, and made history. The procession was a thousand cempedaes long. We used ways of walking together that brought gasps and cheers from the crowd. The procession would change steps instantly, together, to screams of delight from the people. Valens and his family loved it, and I was able to have a happy productive life. “Heros” is one of the songs I wrote for the wedding. Unfortunately all memories of this celebration have been lost in time. A gift has been granted me to bring one of these songs back to life. I think I got it pretty close. Please check out the song "Heros", and thank you. John P
This is the driest time ever recorded in the northwest rain forest. No rain and record heat. Washington State has hundreds of wildfires burning every day. Not as bad as last year yet, but we’re a month ahead of last year. Sometimes smoke fills the air and it doesn’t smell like wood. Everyone is looking out their window for the rain that might get here next week. Even the large trees are feeling the change. Trees don’t mind cold weather. It kills the bugs that eat at the tree all summer. If it doesn’t get cold the bugs don’t die; unless there are no trees left for them to eat. Even after the trees die the bugs can feast on them for years to come, as long as it doesn’t get cold. Any lightning strike will start a fire. The fire will extinguish all life in its path; except the Ponderosa Pine. They will only reproduce in fire. They burn up to the trunk and magically return next year. The pine cones germinate in fire so the following year there are little ones all around. Mila Nebi.
