I have noticed more than a few times recently from a friend and a relative that I have a tough presentation on the outside but once you take the time to get to know me I am really a teddy bear..:)  Music is a spot for me that i love.  it can move the soul and stir emotions like nothing else i know.  STNG had two episodes that the music leaves me speechless.  One is the episode “The Inner Light” with some of the most beautiful music I have heard in a long time.  It is followed up by the episode “Lessons” where we hear Picard play the theme in a duet(or he fakes it well..<G>).  either way this song is very moving and I listen to it from time to time.  I could not find any real clips from the actual episode…if you can watch the episode titled “Lessons” on STNG it will blow you away if you are into great, classical plot lines.  I am providing a few links to some renditions.  I have saved all of these to my local system so i can listen to them when the feeling strikes me. I hope you enjoy it as much as i do..:)

here’s the duet sequences.

here’s another performance.

One more.

 

 

 

i loved this song when i was a kid in the 70’s and 80’s…i never knew who this was until tonight when i saw a story and interview with him posthumously.

 

CHUCK BROWN & THE SOUL SEARCHERS, BUSTIN’ LOOSE – YouTube.

In terms of after we’ve raised our kids and what not?  I don’t relaly want to give up my business..per se..but i DO wish to give up the rat race…this song by blackmoor’s night sums it up very well.  While I don’t ascribe to the apparent pagansistic ways of blackmors night there’s no doubt you can be a Christian and love Celtic music.  I’ve always been so drawn to the Celtic music I’m curious if I’ll wind up there “later in life”.  If not someplace similar in this country…I would live in a house with no internet..phones..etc etc..not totally modern free..but no anything else.  I would then drive a self-imposed commute to my literal office where i would carry out my business duties for ECC.  I might even start a christian Celtic music studio.  I’ve always wondered why there aren’t any really overt Celtic Christian musicians…maybe i could change that.  My wife says it’s going to be interesting to watch me age…i hope it will be just as interesting to watch me mature into the man i really want to be in all facets…:)

Looking out and I’m wondering where I am
While I’m stuck in the daily traffic jam
I decide to get out and leave the world behind me
Everywhere there are people passing by
Empty faces and not a friendly smile
Under stress, loneliness, a part of our city

Now I finally have decided
I will leave it all behind
And discover something better
And l know where I will find
Find a place of harmony, of laughter and of dreams
It you want me, that is where I’ll be

I’ll be waiting on the Highland
With its wonderful serenity
Where the stars glow and the brooks flow
That’s my way of life
When the mountains on the Highland
And the nature is surrounding me
When the wind blows
That’s all I need, all I need

On the highland when I was a child
I would play with my friends and we were wild
And we all loved the moors, the nature and it’s freedom
And we went for ghost hunt in the mist
I remember the first time I got kissed
By the shy neighbour guy, who whispered “be my girlfriend”
But I longed for some excitement
So l travelled ’round the world
After that I settled down and
I became a city girl
Went to parties every night and lived intensively
Now I know it’s not a life for me

I’ll be waiting on the Highland
With it’s wonderful serenity
Where the stars glow and the brooks flow
That’s my way of life
When the mountains on the Highland
And the nature is surrounding me
When the wind blows
That’s all I need
On the Highland, on the Highland, you will see

Oh my darling, I would hate to leave it without you
I’m sure you love the highland too

If you join me I can promise
You’ll stay until eternity

I’ll be waiting on the Highland
With it’s wonderful serenity
Where the stars glow and the brooks flow
That’s my way of life
When the mountains on the Highland
And the nature is surrounding me
When the wind blows
That’s all I need
On the Highland

On the Highland

All the mountains on the highland are embracing
and surrounding me

“It should be harder to be an artist,” Cyrus, 18, told Australia’s Daily Telegraph of the 13-year-old Internet sensation. “You shouldn’t just be able to put a song on YouTube and go on tour.”
