“It is spring again. The Earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.” ― Rainer Maria Rilke

U2 All I Want Is You & Love Rescue Me (360� Live From Sydney) [Multicam By Mek with U22's Audio]

The four of us got back into the car. In an instant, I distinctly heard a "soundless music". It was the melody of friendship, the sound of a perfectly tuned quartet who got together by chance, four hearts playing in harmony. - Author: You Jin

U2 - North Star Mercy (Munich 2010) -MULTICAM DRAFT-

Music is the social act of communication among people, a gesture of friendship, the strongest there is." - Author: Malcolm Arn

"I give to thee great gardens, with trees and vines in the temple of Atuma, I give to thee lands with olive trees in the city of On. I have furnished them with gardeners, and many men to make ready oil of Egypt for kindling the lamps of thy noble temple. I give to thee trees and wood, date palms, incense, and lotus, rushes, grasses, and flowers of every land, to set before thy fair face."
- Rameses III, 1155 BCE
A favorite quote of mine .....

Sanvean (I Am Your Shadow) ~ Lisa Gerrard

Lisa Gerrard - Man On Fire

"Just goes to show how prophetic those old composers were, that's nearly 300 years old and yet lends itself well to a rock interpretation. Hats off to JS Bach and others for their genius.." quote from you tube for ..

Just One Mom

A Mother's Love Poem

Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,

Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,

Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn.

But only one mother the whole world over.

The only part of a mighty Mass that the twenty-year-old (!) composer thought worthy of preserving (the rest of the Mass was reconstructed from orchestral parts discovered in a Belgian attic in the early 1990s), Berlioz’s “Resurrexit” is surely the most stirring realization of Jesus’ resurrection in all of music. It also makes one realize again how revolutionary was Berlioz’s music; the Mass was written three years before Beethoven’s death and yet already sounds like a work of post-Beeethovenian Romanticism—though its being Berlioz’s music, it resembles no other composer’s work.

“Resurrexit” from the Messe Solennelle, by Hector Berlioz (1824)

Sissel Kyrkjeb� - Ave Maris Stella

This is a gorgeus perfomance by Sissel. Ave Maris Stella (Hail, O Star of the Ocean) is a plainsong Vespers hymn to the Virgin Mary. It is of uncertain origin and can be dated back at least as far as the eighth century.
It was especially popular in the Middle Ages and has been used by many composers as the basis of other compositions.

Sissel Kyrkjeb� & Ole Paus - Innerst i sjelen (Deep Within My Soul) - 2017

Sissel Kyrkjeb� & Ole Paus singing "Innerst i sjelen (Deep Within My Soul)" as a duet at the Celebration Concert for Ole Paus' 70 years birthday in the Opera House, Oslo in March 2017.

Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas. ~Peg Bracken

Our Dear DN Family of Friends, The Christmas Spirit is felt here at our dn all year long as through our time and love we share friendship, sisterhood & brotherhood. Beautiful gift is given to us here at our Desktop Nexus. Blessings of Peace & Joy to All.

Andrea Bocelli, Laura Pausini - Dare To Live (HD) ft. Laura Pausini

Andrea Bocelli- Dare To Live (Duet With Laura Pausini)

Versions: #1#2
Try looking at tomorrow not yesterday
And all the things you left behind
All those tender words you did not say
The gentle touch you couldn't find

In these days of nameless faces
There is no one truth but only pieces
My life is all i have to give

Dare to live until the very last
Dare to live forget about the past
Dare to live giving something of yourself to others
Even when it seems there's nothing more left to give

But if you see a human
In front of your entrance
Who sleeps wrapped in a box,
If you would listen to the world in the morning
Without the noise of the rain.
You are that one who can create with your voice,
You think with the thoughts of people,
Of the God who is just the God.

To live, no one has ever taught it,
To live, it's impossible to live without the past,
To live is beautiful even if you have never asked for.
It will be a song, someone will sing it.

Dare to live searching for the ones you love,
(Why, why, why, why are you not living tonight?)
Dare to live no one but we all,
(Why, why, why, why are you not living now?)
Dare to live until the very last,
(Why, why, why is the life not the life?)
Your life is all you have to give (Because)
You have not lived the life!

Dare to live until the very last,
(Why, why, why is the life not the life?)
Your life is all you have to give (Because)
You have never lived.

I will say no (I will say yes)
Say dare to live
Dare to live

Our DN Family of Friends - Blessings forever & ever.
Always, Carmen , Picasso & Pasha

"The young May moon is beaming, love.
The glow-worm's lamp is gleaming, love.
How sweet to rove,
Through Morna's grove,
When the drowsy world is dreaming, love!
Then awake! -- the heavens look bright, my dear,
'Tis never too late for delight, my dear,
And the best of all ways
To lengthen our days
Is to steal a few hours from the night, my dear!"
- Thomas Moore, The Young May Moon


You know I want the best for you
As you've always wanted for me
And though our eyes may look alike but
They don't see the same thing
Hurt made a great divide
I added to the pain
My way to survive was shutting you out
Oh I was just a child, I no longer recognize
And now I'm seeing you
Maybe the first time

You did the best you could, the best you can
I know you did the best you could, the best you can
Do you know you did the best you could, the best you can
Forgive me now, oh I understand

They say we turn into our parents
I guess we know now what they mean
We might be made of broken pieces
But that's not who we have to be
Your mother's mother taught her only how to love
From an empty fearful broken place
Oh you were just child taught to shoulder the blame
But you're a woman now
You can lift your face

'Cause mother
You did the best you could, the best you can
I know you did the best you could, the best you can
Do you know you did the best you could, the best you can
Forgive me now, oh I understand

Basket of hugs to all our dn family, Happy Week,.
Always Carmen, Picasso & Pasha ....................

H�l�ne Grimaud & Sol Gabetta - Piano and Violoncello - Duo (Trailer)

Every so often, a musical encounter sees a truly astonishing "musico-biological" process take place. The meeting of the pianist H�l�ne Grimaud and the cellist Sol Gabetta last summer at the Menuhin Festival in Gstaad was one such rare encounter. Two charismatic stars made music together: two performers who play with such a combination of passion and intelligence that time after time they made the classics sound as contemporary as if composed today.

H�l�ne Grimaud e Sol Gabetta, Duo; Brahms - Debussy.

H�l�ne Grimaud - Klavier / Piano

Sol Gabetta - Violoncello / Violoncelle

Johannes Brahms - Sonata No. 1 em Mi menor, Op. 38 para Piano e Violoncelo
III. Allegro

Claude Debussy - Sonata em R� menor, para Piano e Violoncelo
III. Final - Anim�, l�ger et nerveux
Berliner Philharmoniker, 2012.

“So when you're cold
From the inside out
And don't know what to do,
Remember love and friendship,
And warmth will come to you.”

"Walela" sings "Circle of Light". Indian mood song.

Walela", Rita Coolidge,Laura Satterfield and Priscilla Coolidge sing "Circle of light"

I'm not right
you're not wrong
We both know what this love
of ours is build upon
We are shadows
tiny sparrow
safe inside
clear blue sky
of another storm
moving in and out of time
In and out of the sircle of life.

We are children of the angels
Keepers of the fire
We are children of the angels
Reaching for the light
We are not strangers
we are all brothers
I know we came here to love each other
Here, in the sircle of life.

Each one thinks he
has an answer
Each one believes that he can see
the way, the only way
truth lies waiting
was always waiting
like a love
peaceful dove
right there inside your sole
from another place and time
Moving into the circle of light.
