July 6, 2023 - FINALLY! At long last we have finished the production of the slide show that was envisioned to accompany the RESPITE GUITAR IN NATURE SUITE. If you ever need a 30 minute escape from the rattle and hum of your day, click on the youtube.com link below. Quietly Enjoy!
Have you ever just slipped away – alone – for a special “mental health” day…just you - from dawn to dusk - to breathe in the beauty of nature…to think…to ponder…to ruminate and to recover?? Well, we now have a soundtrack for your special day :)
Follow along as Polly Feeney, our protagonist, navigates her journey, starting with an early morning escape through her unsettling urban cityside clamor, rattle and hum…
Track 1: NEW YORK MINUTES
…she clears the turnstiles to initiate her getaway from New York via the subway; and finds herself outside the city, embracing a reconnection with beauty of nature as she strolls through a fragrant and flowery green meadow…
Track 2: MORNING GLORIES
…serenaded by the positive energy of bird calls under the watchful warmth of a sun-drenched morning on her way to a seaside retreat.
Once through the meadow and approaching the solitude of the waves lapping at the shoreline, Polly finally stops to relax on the unpopulated beach, enjoying the opportunity to breathe deeply and think clearly again.
Track 3: SOLITUDES
She walks along at the side of the sea, which offers ample time and space to ponder life; and to reminisce about events in her life that have mattered most to her…
Track 4: REMINISCENCES
…along with ruminating about the deeper remembrance of the dear loved ones who have played key roles in her life…cherishing and celebrating each memory.
Track 5: REMEMBRANCES
Polly, continuing in the solitude of her walk, eventually comes across a beach area filled with families and children playing in the sand and sea, which enables her to embrace the positivity of family togetherness and love and allows her to recount a series of affirmations about her own life and plans for her future.
Track 6: AFFIRMATIONS
Then, as the day begins to wind down and the sun plans it setting as evening falls, she departs the seaside for the peaceful warmth of a small outdoor café nestled in an open field where the nighttime sounds are teeming with life…
Track 7: EVENING QUIETUDES
…where she sits back to relax and recover…in the quiet of the night while enjoying a superb glass of wine.
