life is in the way right now. i have a lot of work and a not-so-fun appointment coming up that includes a kid under full anesthesia. it's not serious, but requires that he'll be put to sleep during the process. after we realized there's no - responsible - way to avoid it, i have tried not to think about it. it scares the hell out of me. it's tomorrow.
so, i couldn't really wrap my mind around a subject, only managed to capture a few random thoughts going through my head, when thinking about music:
:: i grew up with a piano and many many string instruments, yet i don't play any myself. i wish i did, though, and i'm happy that D plays the guitar, so he can play music to the kids. i'll do the dancing then.
:: one of my boys has a thing with music. he remembers songs and melodies extremely well. he's been able to sing entire songs long before he knew how to actually talk. the other day there was someone playing music outside. he stopped, sat down and listened for a while and said "mom, i just love music". so adorable. i hope he would like to learn to play an instrument when he gets older.
:: i love the old blue note record covers from the 50's and 60's. my first serious boyfriend was a jazz musician. the avantgarde kind. i didn't like his music that much, but i loved to look through his record collection.
:: all three kids have gotten crazy with this one particular song. i put on an old cd in the car, a cd i made last year. the song "relax" by mika completely stole their hearts. that's the only thing they want to hear in the car these days while they all scream "relaaaaaaax, take it eeeeeeaaaaasyyy" (i know they don't know what it means, but i still have a feeling they're singing it to me these days :). even though it's a nice song, it's starting to drive me and D crazy.
:: this year the artist tal r made the poster for copenhagen jazz festival. i adore tal r, but i was kind of disappointed about the poster.
:: we live close to cesarea, which is the ruins of a 2000 year old roman city. i love to go snorkeling there, as the ruins are partly inside the water. there's a huge outdoor theatre that was reconstructed and is now used for concerts. you sit above the stage and have a spectacular view to the mediterranean ocean in the background. i would love to go to a concert there.
don't stop moving - the music is still playing here:
