Speaking of rolling stones...
This weekend I caught a program on PBS telly called "Rock 'n Roll Circus" (or something like that). Anyone seen it? Everyone was so young, lol...Jagger went crazy...of course.
Anyway, what music am I listening to? Well, obviously I came inside to write about it, but a minute ago or so, I was listening to the rain falling through the pine trees and onto the wooden deck. Just something beautiful about it. I am out here toward Louisiana, and the music of the woods plays differently than it does on my stone patio back at my urban oasis. The rain is the rain wherever it falls, and it always stirs the spirit and the senses, but it makes the song new wherever it plays.
Ah, the rain. I miss the rain of the east coast. Back in South Carolina, huge thunderstorms crush us about every summer afternoon. Big, thick clouds pour their humidity down in fists of rain. Sometimes I would just stand out there, getting drenched. Even when a thunderstorm broke in the night, you could do that and be comfortable in the mild or warm humidity.
Damn, I took that for granted. Along with the trees, that was one of the things I quickly and acutely missed when I moved out this way. Out here in the fields of wheat, trees and humidity are rare, and our moisture comes mostly from snowmelt. This time of year, though, we get some drizzle. Water is a really important element for me, I think. So the rainy season, mild as it may be here, is most welcome.
As far as music goes, though, I'm listening to Smashing Pumpkins' Adore this morning.
I think he's Colombian, possibly some of you know of him as he's apparently huge in Latin American music. He came to Taiwan not so long ago to promote his new CD. Great pop music.

Today, I cut the umbilical cords from a fourth generation aloe vera plant, and made up new "pads" for the young ones to live in (I hope). I have lost count of how many offspring are there. (That is why I saved all those little pots, I guess.) Big Aloe stayed inside with me all winter long. So big, didn't know where to keep it, so we just kept it where it was happy.
Young man who recently moved out from his mother's house next door to his own pad came over today and cut her grass with their old lawnmower. We had a nice talk.
The purple irises are blooming in my garden in my oasis yard. Talked to Dad on the telephone today--he is watching the pines and applying an east Texas flair to the bonsai concept for the peach tree back near the fence in his backyard. My granddaughter (the only girl among five grandchildren of this "only child" came over with her mom today just to say "hello" and find out which seashell of my lifelong collection she could talk me out of this time. She chose a small, ivory-white one. I will not let her have the beach wood artifact that rather looks like a snake and is very fragile. But she has her eye on it....
I guess I should be posting this on my "I Love it When" thread, but I really just started out to write up my play list for this beautiful afternoon I give thanks for.
And the play list was:
Cat Stevens--Moonshadow, Oh Very Young, Into White, Morning Has Broken
Emerson, Lake, & Palmer (again)--From the Beginning
Chick Korea and Return to Forever--Light As a Feather (it begins to annoy me about halfway through, but it rocks, anyway)
Chicago--Make Me Smile
There was also something by Louden-can't remember what it was, but it was beautiful
Sly and the Family Stone--Everybody Is a Star (love the stuff that sounds like hens there)
And probably some more stuff--I'm sure "The Boxer" was probably in there somewhere.
I type alot. Sorry--I guess--got carried away.

Moby - Porcelain
