    Adventure Song for Gosig & Dr. J. Mouseman
    Left by Rainer Eric, on Oct 6, 2017 - 8:56
    Hi Joanne,

    we listened to the song "The Adventures Of Gosig & Dr. J. Mouseman". The mice coincided: it's a great Adventure Song. Now they want to experience an adventure having this song in mind. Great expectations.

    The mice are really proud. What an honour!
    We will upload a pic today showing Gosig and Mouseman enjoying their song.

    We love you :-)

    Thank you so much for your generous donations, and for the lovely comments. Your kind gesture has taken me out of my musical torpor : I'm recording a song for you, inspired by you and your mice. I'll tell you more about it when it's finished ; hopefully vey soon. :)
    Also, I'm going to send you an email to explain you what kept me away for so long, and to take our exchanges up again. Been through a weird time...
    I thought of you, wondering if you managed to have a few adventures after our last PMs. I think our friendship is an adventure of sorts. :)
    More soon (I promise). I'll get back to you when your song is ready.
    Take care. <3

    Hey there
    Left by JG, on Jul 11, 2017 - 7:15
    How are you doing?
    I'm not where I want to be with my chapter : proofreading is taking much more time and energy than usual, which makes me feel quite frustrated. I'm comforting myself by thinking that the said chapter contains lots of complex elements that are essential to the book. But such a slow pace is maddening, haha.
    "Writing and proof reading needs concentration over a long time. And hardly any distractions."
    Yes, it's so true, but I've worked on this thing everyday for almost three years. When I'm caught up in intense writing phases, I don't even realize that time passes. It often takes me weeks before I realize I've cut myself from the world. It's good and not good at the same time, if you see what I mean.
    Thanks for being a patient friend. Not everybody understand how my vortices work. :)
    Glad to hear you've sorted out your pics ; you've been quick to organize all of them, wow! Did the mice help? ;)
    I have like 12000 forest pics that I need to sort out someday. I should have done that right away, cause now I can't find the courage to do it.
    Still no adventures? I still do forest bathing once a week with Mantra. Not very adventurous, but definitely soothing.
    Take care! :)

    I can't believe so much time has passed since my last comment! I'm caught up in a frenzy of sorts - which often happens when I'm finalizing a chapter. This one was pretty long ; it took me quite a while to get the writing done, and now I'm proofreading like mad, so as to be able to move to the next chapter. You're not the only person I neglected in the past couple of weeks ; I'm behind schedule with everyone and everything, including music. Oops...

    How are you doing? I hope you and your mice have been enjoying some adventurous outing.

    I'll be back to reply more, look at your pics and read your story!
    Take care. :)

    Sorry for the late reply!

    I was absorbed in various things that kept me away from Uvumi, but I don't forget you!
    I'll be back soon to reply to your latests comments, and to read your stories.
    Meanwhile, I hope you have a great (adventurous) time. :)

    Getting lost : your story is funny and scary. I wouldn't have enjoyed that, haha.
    Food would be a problem for me, if I got on an adventurous trip. Like you, I'm a vegetarian, and a picky one. I'd rather starve than eat something I dislike or distrust.
    Well, food is a problem in the everyday life when you start paying attention to what you eat. I have to compromise all the time. I do, because I'm reasonable, but I hate the idea that I'm not in control when it comes to that. It's like chemical shampoos and soaps. Modern lifestyle poisons us, but it's almost impossible to escape, even though you know it.

    "Enjoy the simple things" : Yes, that's one of the important lessons than non-humans creatures have taught me. They're much wiser than us in that respect.
    "There shall be no alternative to the greedy lifestyle."
    I second that. I find it scary that so many people never question their lifestyle, and rely on hollow stuff to build a fake happiness. Do you know the "Black Mirror" series? Frightening stuff, not so far from reality...

    Know what is really precious, and enjoy it while you have it.
    I love Jeff Buckley's rendition of the song "Satisfied Mind" (https://youtu.be/N8uk9Ql8J-A). Awesome lyrics. A true anthem to life.

    Simple Minds : I had that album (and like you, I regard Seeing Out The Angel as the climax). I love all their stuff until 1989. My favorite albums are New Gold Dream and Sparkle In The Rain.

    Waterboys : same as with Simple Minds ; I love their older stuff more. Everything until Dream Harder. And there are gems in The Secret Life of the Waterboys.
    I couldn't even tell which album is my favorite. All of them have a different vibe, and a strong identity. Their Irish folk music oriented stuff is awesome.

    mp3 player : I used to listen to music a lot while walking outside, or on the bus or the train. Nowadays, I can't listen on headphones, due to my fragile hearing. But I hear music in my head all the time, so it's ok. :)
    Yes, the rhythm in "Flying" is for movement.
    As for "Be Yourself", I'm afraid there's not much to analyze : it's an old song, and at that time, my music was rather spontaneous. I started working with symbolism and complex structures years after.
    Anyway, I enjoy the idea that each listener has a unique perception of my music, and hears it and "sees" it differently. Even when I build a piece around a solid concept, I like that others will see something different in it.

    "The last adventure day we made month ago. I'm taking a day off on Friday. So maybe ..."
    I hope you enjoyed your Friday, and made it adventurous! For my part, I was caught up in various stuff in the past days ; writing, music, and life. Yes, the latter sometimes gains on other things, haha.
    Heat is back, but if it cools down by the end of the day, we'll take Mantra to the forest for a new exploration.
