It's spring time. The grass is beginning to turn green. Leaf and flower buds are blossoming on trees and plants. The cold of winter is finished as the spring ushers in warm air. Spring is my favorite time of year.
This short tune, "As a Flower Blossoms" is by jazz-guitarist, Pat Metheny. You can find it and other wonderful music by him on his album, "Secret Story" which came out in the early 1990s (around 1993, I believe). This is a short piece. It's a simple arrangement. Listen carefully and you hear the sound of children playing in the background. Listen to the end of the piece and you'll hear a young voice quietly singing the melody which brilliantly adds a layer of innocence to the music.
The pictorial portion of the video was created by some unknown photo-artist from some a country I do not know. The name of this person is in a language that I do not recognize. What is recognizable is that this person did a wonderful job interpreting the music with his or her photos. These series of photos "tell" a story that is thought-provoking in their own right. The music and the photos seem to compliment each other in an artful way.
It is my hope that this video, both music and photos, will bring to the viewer a sense of Peace. It is my belief that we all need that sense of Peace but often neglect it in our busy lives. The video is short, but it is lovely. Enjoy.
