Visions of Music

"You've perfectly captured the multi-dimensional aspect of music, and its depths of texture, and the flowing movement of it!  I love the figurative element of the string instrument fiddle-heads (bass viol?), because their coiled energy adds a hint of both vortical strength and a subtle symbolism of eternity.  That's where we are, isn't it, when we lose ourselves in music -- both right here and anywhere/everywhere... - Anne Hammond, D.Phil (Oxon)
The Desert heat, the human color, the thousand beasts pf the Pushkar Camel Fair, the leavening music.
