Dutch Mountain and Woods – PianoTweet no. 564

An afternoon walk in the dutch woods,
crossing a dutch mountain.

In my country, the Netherlands,
we call a hill a mountain.

The most important impression is
the absolute peace and silence
nature IS in itself.

It creates harmony and eternity,
life comes and goes
as a never ending circle.

Summer Fogs – PianoTweet no. 561

A bit particular in summer:

In my country, the Netherlands,
it happens now and then.
Because of its geograpic position near the sea,
causing humidity above the country.

When we expect the sunshine to shine,
the temperature meanwhile to be comfortable,
it might happen that
some kind of veils are there.

Disturbing the view,
obstructing the sunbeams
to get through and reach the ground,
where our feet should be planted.

Fast and Slow – PianoTweet no. 559

Nowadays information
comes fast and with a huge quantity.
We hardly can filter and decide
what we need and what we do not.

So, in my honest opinion,
we need to slow down more and more
to create a “contra weight”:
experience the difference between
high speed and low speed,
noisy rumors and whispering silence,
crowded places and empty landscapes.

All this and more is needed to hear
our internal whispers and shimmering voices.

NEW Title for “Title Needed – PianoTweet no. 544”: “Tiananmen Tears”

Dear followers and listeners,

Finally a new title that suits PianoTweet no. 544.

During the publication of that PianoTweet, called “Title Needed”,
there were passed appr. 25 years
since thousands of people raised their voices and protested at
Tiananmen Square in Beijing.

Nobody knows exactly what happened those days.
Only a few know the truth about it,
but they do not want to talk or they can’t…

It may be clear that many tears have been shed
due to the sad and horrifying historical events.

Laura Sessions Tinnel’s suggestion for a new title was
the one that touched me most and that fits best to the music.

From now on it will be: “Tiananmen Tears”.
Thank you, Laura!

Thanks to all other participants for your suggestions!
