"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief... and unspeakable love." Washington Irving....


"In its metamorphosis from the common, colorless caterpillar to the exquisite winged creature of delicate beauty,

the butterfly has become a metaphor for transformation and hope;




across cultures, it has become a symbol for rebirth and resurrection, for the triumph of the spirit and the soul over the physical prison, the material world.

Among the ancients, is an emblem of the soul and of unconscious attraction towards light. It is the soul as the opposite of the worm. In Western culture, the butterfly represents lightness and fickleness.

Quote University of Michigan found on Google Search...


"In these moments of heartbreaking grief, I remember the only reason we have an empty space is because we were blessed with someone who loved us so beautifully it occupied an entire part of our soul." - Unknown

HELLO & HUGS DN FAMILY OF FRIENDS...
A NEW DISCOVERY I'VE BEEN INTRODUCED TO THIS DAY... PLAYING THE BRILLIANT CREATIONS OF THE GIFTED COMPOSER FRAZ LISZT......

Francesco Piemontesi /Pianist ..... Marek Janowski /Conductor
https://youtu.be/p26nIY2FAOo?si=3_-wNlUb63_26ys5

quote youtube member & Fan of our beloved Liszt
"Liszt was the rock star of his age; huge crowds would show up. He had a standing offer to compete with other pianists - he always won and many of his opponents would leave the stage in tears"



Liszt: 3 Etudes de Concert, S. 144 - No. 3 in D-Flat Major "Un sospiro"
https://youtu.be/qypYyZLVKIs?si=ygfQgU1Q07mJXuaL




Franz Liszt: Au bord d'une source (Francesco Piemontesi)
https://youtu.be/5l3WWKexogw?si=p2mpIgX35WO65Z5_




quote google search..
Francesco Piemontesi is a pianist of exceptional refinement of expression, which is allied to a consummate technical skill.
pianism and sensibility has a close affinity too with the later 19th century and 20th century repertoire of Brahms, Liszt, Dvorak, Ravel, Debussy, Bartok and beyond

Liszt: Au lac de Wallenstadt (Annees de pelerinage) ∙ Francesco Piemontesi

HAPPY SUNDAY MY DESKTOP NEXUS FAMILY OF FRIENDS..
MAKE A WISH AND ALL WILL COME TRUE.....ALWAYS CARMEN.


BY Alex Hunter May 2016

sunrise, sunset
sunrise, sunset
birds fly, land, and fret
doctors mend, treat and heal
write wake, write and feel.

sunrise, sunset
the fish swims while the parrot pecks,
the bees nestle back into their hives
as the moon lifts, and the sun dives.

sunrise, sunset
the diaries cease to forget
when all go back to rest
with the sunrise, sunset.

so as the babies mumble and the children cry,
the world lives and nature thrives.
the mother yawns and resets
with the sunrise and the sunset.

my first poem ever
