Music for the soul made in the Cistercian Abbey Stift Heiligenkreuz in the Vienna Woods by monks

called Chant

From Wikipedia:


The cathedral's pipe organ which was built by T. C. Lewis and Co of Brixton, England. Over six and half thousand pounds were spent on its construction, shipping and installation before it was played at the cathedral's opening in 1891. Various modifications and maintenance works have been carried out since then, culminating in a $726,000 restoration which was completed in 1990 with the help of a National Trust appeal. In its restored state the organ has four manuals with 44 stops and pedals with nine stops, all with electro-pneumatic action. It is housed in the cathedral's south transept behind newly-stencilled facade pipes.


Here's a link to download an MP3 of JS Bach - Sinfonia to Cantata 29 (arr Gehring) - played by David Ratnanayagam on the St Paul's Cathedral organ.

meditation is not only visual but audio. Vibration is sound. The extension of the senses and their refinement leads not only to clairvoyance but also to the clairaudio. Within the Kundalini System, the clairaudio is the more advanced experience given the chakra to which sound is associated.

The Alan Parsons Project "Old And Wise"


As far as my eyes can see

There are shadows approaching me

And to those I left behind

I wanted you to know

You've always shared my deepest thoughts

You follow where I go



And oh when I'm old and wise

Bitter words mean little to me

Autumn winds will blow right through me

And someday in the mist of time

When they asked me if I knew you

I'd smile and say you were a friend of mine

And the sadness would be lifted from my eyes

Oh when I'm old and wise


As far as my eyes can see

There are shadows surrounding me

And to those I leave behind

I want you all to know

You've always shared my darkest hours

I'll miss you when I go



And oh, when I'm old and wise

Heavy words that tossed and blew me

Like autumn winds will blow right through me

And someday in the mist of time

When they ask you if you knew me

Remember that you were a friend of mine

As the final curtain falls before my eyes

Oh when I'm old and wise


As far as my eyes can see


Listen to the whole album

An old friend, my violin,

Still lies within it's case,

And at times I take it out

To play and reminisce.

The joy of life it brought to me

As I picked up that precious bow,

And o'er the strings did play the songs,

That were the best to know.

My problems seemed to dwindle,

My thoughts went high above,

When the music flowed so gently,

In tender tonelike love.

There's nothing else can take it's place,

The music of this world,

To bring that special joy of life,

To unloose and to unfurl.

Hello my dear flickr friends. Sorry I have been away for a while. Had taken on a temporary assignment of work that required me to travel very far and with not much, if at all, access to the internet. I will be trying to catch up as usual. Wishing you a very happy week and weekend : )) xo


In the meantime, I thought I would share with you one of my beautiful visions of multicoloured rays reaching down like rainbow strings from heaven. As the breeze blew gently around these flowers, it made each flower sway back and forth, delicately touching the rainbow strings in their own individual way and momentum. After sitting there a while, I could almost hear the musical notes on the strings creating heavenly melodies. This must be how angels play their music.


There must be an Angel by Annie Lennox of Eurythmics - one of my favourite female singers


Annie Lennox Live with her amazing voice


Song lyrics

No-one on earth could feel like this.

I'm thrown and overblown with bliss.

There must be an angel

Playing with my heart.

I walk into an empty room

And suddenly my heart goes "boom"!

It's an orchestra of angels

And they're playing with my heart.


(must be talking to an angel)


No-one on earth could feel like this.

I'm thrown and overblown with bliss.

There must be an angel

Playing with my heart.

And when i think that i'm alone

It seems there's more of us at home.

It's a multitude of angels

And they're playing with my heart.


Chorus repeats.


I must be hallucinating

Watching angels celebrating.

Could this be reactivating

All my senses dislocating?

This must be a strange deception

By celestial intervention.

Leavin' me the recollection

Of your heavenly connection.

for the 72 hr. challenge: "around the house"... now, which one to use...

Whenever I use my guitar for an image, I tend to get sentimental. My poor baby has had some use. If you look, you'll see the sound hole isn't so round any more. The wood on the right side has worn down to the plastic ring from constant strumming. I'm a bit heavy handed on the up tempo tunes. :) I'll tend to play high on the neck, thus missing the pick guard and wearing a near hole in the top. The bridge has cracked and been repaired and frets replaced through the years. It was dropped and the top split away from the sides. It was repaired. The wood has been cured with tequila, smoke, beer, sweat and tears. A lot of time, love and memories are associated with this piece of wood. And it's never sounded better!


I know, I know... I couldn't help myself. I've been busy playing the piano and haven't had time for photography so I thought, "why not combine the two" is what it is :-)

I photographed this tree a while ago, when in full leaf. The wind then was tossing the leaves, and the tree looked fine.


Now it has a more autumnal look, but still looks charming up on its stony ridge.
