I recently put to music a couple of Tao Te Ching Verses. Verse 17 reminds me of a crochet hook: it works hard and when you are done with the piece you have created, it seems like the pen did not do anything yet it was instrumental in pulling the wool together into a creation that would otherwise not exist.
I sometimes feel people are like that: they enter your life- get’s you to the other side of impossibilities and then leaves without leaving a trace. Yet you find yourself on the other side of the river you needed to cross.
Almost like stepping stones to the Big One.

“The great ruler speaks little
And his words are priceless
He works without self-interest
And leaves no trace
When all is finished, the people say,
“It happened by itself”
Tao Te Ching, from Verse 17

>The picture is rehearsals and what happens when you make a selfie-video on somebody else’s phone and you can’t find the ‘STOP’ button but instead take a lot of silly pictures… Winston Siljeur in action.
>Take me to the videoclip of Misty… Misty- Marthie & Winston-#JazzFridays youtu.be/-JZM7e8OXA8
>Footcare as usual: reaching the end of community psychology: may all the problems AND solutions multiply.
>Song of the week is the closest to jazz chords I’ll probably get in songwriting ii7,V7; iii7,vi7… I wrote it with my first Songwriters Session I ever did and it ended up not being a crowded room but it did inspire a great song… Waiting for You-Marthie Nel Hauptfleisch-Woman On Fire youtu.be/J0OyzcQtMqU

Waiting for you
V1. I’m waiting for you
But you’re not here
Some-one moved the piano
I’m not surprised
The tea is cold
Waiting, waiting, waiting waiting

Chorus: There’s just no magic
I can’t feel it on my own
There’s just no magic when you’re not here
Please come
Please come

V2. I’m waiting for you
But you’re not here
Some-one moved the furniture
I’m not surprised
The tea is cold
Waiting, waiting, waiting waiting

Bridge: I blame it on the weather
And how it’s the rainy outside
Is there something I could have said?
Or done or tried?
