I noticed there's a lot of politically charged threads on here (no problem with that) so I thought I'd create a space for people to wind down and discuss how they're doing/ what's been on their mind. Use this as a happy space to post your favorite cat videos or talk about how you're feeling, anything to give your mind a break from the crazy thing that is reality. Grab a cup of tea or coffee and chill, all are welcome 🙂

Some relaxation:

What I've been doing is re-starting my weekly or bi-weekly jam sessions.      I really missed these.     While I didn't play with other musicians (since March of 2020),  I did practice a lot and work on things I had put off for years.    We also shared what tunes  we were working on.      So even though we hadn't  played together for over 15 months we were more connected,  musically than we were before;    This is important to me because I get so much joy connecting musically with others.

I appreciate that!

I've really only found a handful of books that hold my attention to the end, usually I enjoy historical fiction or psychological fiction and the like. :)

I'll admit, I was slow to get the pun, but now that you mention it elevator music is very uplifting 😉😂

 Hopefully Not A Bother, Namely Here Are Several Recommendations to the Tune of Historical Fiction. Though Must Be Said and Admitted; Much Like the Vagaries of "Classic".. ...Some of These Might Stretch Your (Any One's) Aforementioned Working Definitional Bounds of Historical Fiction however

 -  The Scarlet Pimpernel. (Baroness Orxzy

  - The Keys of the Kingdom. (Dont remember Author.. Apologies).

  - The Shoes of the Fisherman.

- (Pretty Much Anything Of) Alistair MaClean.

- the Robe. (no memory unfortunately of This Authors Name At Present Either) 

- While She Might Wax Cheesy at times, Perhaps Taylor Caldwell

Take a dreamy trip

 

 

(Portions of) Such Visuals as these that accompany each Respective "Pieces" of music.. Somewhat Reminds me of Norman Rockwell in color, hue, and "use"/implementation of shadows. Along with a diner/restaurant themed work of art called NightHawks. (Artst. Edward Hopper.)

Totally agree. Nighthawks is one of my favorite paintings, I've done a couple of analyses of it for my art classes, it is a joy to look at.

I Like Art.

 

 

    Probably blatantly (and painfully) obvious to many, given the often augmented and stilted way in which i text and compose stuff. 😂🤦‍♂️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

Same here, except many can just usually tell by how I present myself lol I make it obvious that I love old stuff and creativity by how I dress.😂💁‍♀️

The way you compose stuff is actually favorable, I've seen people type out paragraphs to get a point across ...like how about cutting that down or using pictures or something I can better understand😂

Absolutely, I personally favor Pop art, Art Nouveau, and Surrealist photography the most, but I do love me some good ol' Rococo architecture and Renaissance paintings lol

Im Particularly Fond of, well.. . ... Quite A Few Artists.. (Including) Rembrandt. Vermeer. Da Vinci. Frans Hals; Jaques-Louie David. Eugene Delecroix. Ingres. Along with A. Some Other (circa) 17cent Artists, the Names of which.. i have no Clue how to spell off-hand at present and would probably butcher and mangle their names even worse. .. (😐😬😬🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️ lol) And b. Quite the Spread of Landscape Painters (such as Hudson River School et al.)

  Conversely; i am NOT that much fond of Warhol. Or Dali. (😝 lol) *Which, is Also Kinda (Hysterically) ironic as, many times; i type, as (the the way in which) they create their respective works of art. (😬 lol)
