When you buy this CD, you are purchasing half of an experience. The other half will come from your memories as you imagine your walk in the forest. The walk will be different each time you listen to this CD. The songs on this CD find their genesis in a poem I wrote in 1995 and in my wife's watercolor painting 'Trees' on the CD cover. The poem is reprinted below. Every walk we take is sculpted by our place in life on that particular day, with the joys, sadnesses and fears strained through the surrounding environment we find ourselves in at that moment. Sometimes the sun shines, sometimes the birds sing, but sometimes the weather turns ominous... Enjoy your walk. DANCE I walk out into the bright spring forests I walk unencumbered into the spring forests myriads of birds swarming all entwined all separate each knowing it's place each lifting it's voice in music to the forests as with all music there is a dance and it is a dance of swirling of twirling with mouth gaped open eyes torn open swamped with stimuli with arms outstretched windmills faithfully spinning in smoldering windheat twirling fast as my legs can twirl fast as my head can spin fast as I can avoid plunging into the soft needlerich forest floor as the sun drenches me with it's sheets of cold rich water they love my dance they love my dance it is borne out of their voices no one leaves without singing his finest hour come back always come back forever we have infinite symphonies to write and perform to delight you each is effortless and inborn and of no consequence to us otherwise and each can only be written precisely with you twirling and whirling drunk with spring bright laughter you can take them away with you deep inside in feelings you can live within once you sing through them copyright Greg Graves - 1995/2003.
