Let’s share instead of fight
Let’s listen instead of interrupt
Let’s be patient and respect any opinion
Let’s start with this at home
Let’s do this every day
With Freedom, Passion and Consciousness
Thinking, talking and writing about
childhood, youth and later.
Parents’s choice often is their children’s duty and path.
My choices could wait until I was a grown up.
I was taught about the importance of forgiving anyone else.
So I chose to let my choices wait.
And I waited for others to make their choices.
So again, I kept my own choices in custody.
That was years ago.
Then the Time arrived I learnt to choose:
unchained, free, passionate, driven by my natural energy.
That Time wasn’t that long ago.
Things are not the way we see, hear, or feel them.
There’s too much in between we aren’t aware of.
It’s so easy to judge in a split second.
And then transfer it into a conviction.
There’s a tendency – even more than that –
to base a quick opinion
immediately after reading or hearing for example a news item!
Or after listening to a neighbour’s story in the street…
Shouldn’t we be far more careful?
Could it better not to judge at all?
And face the fact that superficiality in fact doesn’t exist?
Is this a superficial melody?
Een PianoTweets middagconcert door Joost Brands
PianoTweets concert by Joost Brands
Just a melody for summer’s sake…
Simple, romantic, open…
Make your own fantasy today, your own images…
The end of the musical phrase of this PianoTweet is
what musicians sometimes mention as
an open end…
Facing what’s coming up,
meanwhile you’re dreaming away…
Enjoy this new PianoTweet!
Inspired by the sudden death of Amy Winehouse.
She was an amazing and very gifted artist.
She renewed and mixed styles of music in a very intelligent and soulful way.
With a stunning beautiful voice that deeply touched many of us.
I wish I had known her.
For this PianoTweet I “loaned” a phrase from one of her most famous songs:
“You know I’m no good”.
I do not very much agree with the title.
This music makes me feel happy!
Ok, I must admit that the last chords are a bit heavy.
Please, forgive me… 🙂
And now for the News:
September 25th: PianoTweets in Concert!
Live performance in my hometown Utrecht, the Netherlands.
Featuring two fabulous poetrists / spoken word performers:
Deborah and Marja.
I invited them to perform during the concert and they agreed.
And I feel very honored that they will be there and
share their work with me and the audience.
Stay tuned for more details about the artists and the program.
