    The Playful Flute

    fanciful dancing notes hang in the air.. NOT... more like Jethro Tull if you can remember that far back.

    That's what art's about, isn't it -- at some point it's about the relationship between the art and the viewer, sort of like speed dating. (D Akey)

    What a brilliant device. The flashes of color within the black and white with those strong shapes have an amazing effect, as if seen out of the corner of the eye. Flashed of color, flashes of brilliance, glimpses through. . . great connotations. Almost peered through a comfortable numbing. "When I was a child, I caught a fleeting glimpse, out of the corner of my eye. . ."

    Always thought a fleeting glimpse as a child when in a fever, it's a look back or through to where they came from, or a look at possibilities to be possibly had through the life yet to live as an adult, or as a conscious being or an artist. And this could be like a baby blanket of sorts, symbolically. Very intriguing effect and stimulating.

    Joseph Campbell when he was talking about 'The flute' he was referring to the music heard when being lured into a creative life by Pan or the Muse etc. . . and it's a call that needs to be taken up right away.

    thanks so much DAkey for your commentary on this.. Joseph Campbell is one of my favorite men, writer, mystic so the reference is most apropos.

    Lively, colorful, warm memories and past time effects taking that music in a ghostly B&W past with a simultaneously hovering and fading fame that flutters above with the notes ... Nostalgic and rejuvenating feelings mix together.

    I really love this one a lot. Very musical I can see even before I read your title. It's flowing the notes in rhythm, beautiful

    Clearly a genius musician with freedom of expression, totally harmonious and most of all unique and timeless.
    Another wow from me, Gary!
