Writings about Music

Elevate, Levitate, Airborne

Impressions of A Parrot Sipping Tea from an artist friend


Like listening to a playful story.



Dancing, lilting nature play. In each phrase a new animal spirit appears.



"the smell of fresh green desert sage after a cloudburst" These are not my own words, but were written in an email I was reading while listening, sent by an artist friend in Reno. In my mind the words and the music came together like one.



Elevate, levitate, airborne soaring heights of love.


Thank you for sending your beautiful music to me, Michael.

Kudos to the composer, performer, and divine interpreter!

(Carla C.)


In addition to everything else, it felt good reading the word "cloudburst," also appearing in a favorite song by George Harrison.
