Sights and Sounds of the Sun

Video

There is very little sound in space.  Can you imagine what the sun would sound like if you could hear it up close?  Fortunately, we hear the echoes of the sun’s silent roar here on earth.  We can also see the influence and power of our life-giving star.  Here a few videos I took today at one of my favorite parks.  I also include a photograph below.  I love the contrast of green and blue…I don’t know why…but it is so beautiful.  When I experience and enjoy days like this…and I reflect on my life…I would be ok if death came calling…after such a walk.  I have loved…I have succeeded…I have failed…I have lived.

The Snowman

Video

Now I know where Frosty the Snowman came from…I would prefer our children to see this film and listen to this music…the lyrics, the music, this boys voice…come from somewhere magical.  Every now and again, man creates something that is worthy of ringing through eternity.

Lyrics…”Walking in the Air”

We’re walking in the air
We’re floating in the moonlit sky
The people far below are sleeping as we fly

I’m holding very tight
I’m riding in the midnight blue
I’m finding I can fly so high above with you

Far across the world
The villages go by like dreams
The rivers and the hills
The forests and the streams

Children gaze open-mouthed
Taken by surprise
Nobody down below believes their eyes

We’re surfing in the air
We’re swimming in the frozen sky
We’re drifting over icy
Mountains floating by

Suddenly swooping low on an ocean deep
Rousing up a mighty monster from his sleep

We’re walking in the air
We’re dancing in the midnight sky
And everyone who sees us greets us as we fly
