i'd love one with a softer pitch, varied and slowed down; the shadows remind me of freight trains curving old tracks cut into the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

.i love this exchange-- or
       How you become me and i
              become you--for such a little while.

This video reminds me of Rumi's idea of the salt doll -- "Diving into the ocean deeps, or waving this way from the shore, there's a big secret Rumi has to pass on: At some point, the salt doll hecomes the sea." Duality merges...
.
I am supposed to be offline most summer    or in New England visiting {but/ah../or/is /ahmm am oft on tumblr  procrastinating (aka learning)} while simultaneously moodling/creating in the back of my imagination ...

    x (press
but i do (though less) pop about to visit you all. Blessings.

Peace.

loved the third video...just beautiful...made me think of our gift exchanges through words of kindness and appreciation, shared thoughts and images (and videos) as bloggers. BEautitul! Hey if you are down in southern NH, let me know...I'd love for you to come visit me:-)

Sweet M, have a wonderful (semi)quiet summer. I'll be poppin' in every once in a while, just too see if you're back :o) Same procedure as every year :-)
Will have to check out your tumblr (was on foreign ground visiting. must go back)
Soon relocating the work-me - I have lost the seperater between work and not-work lately, and need to get it back. I'm a glass of oil and water, and for some reason I keep shaking it. Need to be one. and the other. not both at all times.Feels unnatural, and disturbingly uncalm.

Google-bounce is weird. I'm glad it dosn't stop you :-) I so appreciate our e-meets.

Take care and be well. and see you soon :-) xo

Ahhhh, As I watch the first video, I can hear the doves from their nest in a pine close to our home call out to each other, and the sprinkler swings back and forth in front of my open windows, hitting the side of the house in rhythm with the bell sounds of the bottles. I think each holds a spirit. And their shadows are travelers.
The white mountains sound beautiful.
Mandala 1 reminds me of a merry-go-round dream and I love the amber colored glass.
And oh, now that I see the last of the three I almost cry...
thank you for sharing these dear friend from across the states.

Oh, amazing! I'd love to sit and watch/listen to the mandalas in person. I especially love the third one; it so poignantly illustrates what can't be put into words... Thank you for sharing these.

Oh! I can't see any of these videos because...my plug-ins are on the flitz! But I wanted to stop by and thank you for your very kind (and articulate) comment this morning. Yes..even a small spot of quiet can change everything and lead us to SELF.

summer is a hard time to keep up with the blog world.. but like you I also try to stay in some touch and I love to come to your blog posts as they are so poetic.

Christine said...

:-)

Thought I had left a comment weeks ago when I visited but must have been waylaid. Thoroughly enjoyed the videos. Transfixed by the third and loved the play of light through the glass in the first..... and the sound of church bells :-)

The musical bottles are wonderful. I love kinetic art where sound, light / reflection/ shadows play a part. Very cool.

Ritva said...

Great videos! I played the bottle ones simultaneously and they sounded amazing together. Love the sweet little bottle exchange story too. Thanks for posting these and for commenting on my blog as well. Happy New Year to you! Cheers!
