Well, the steep learning curve is under way. Moving from the city to the country comes with lots of learning, but more importantly with a complete retrofit of how I think. Part of learning harmony in music, is to know how what you are doing, fits with everything around it. In this case, it is looking at how I think, how I approach things, and seeing how that resonates with other folks around me. So, Harmony lesson no. 2: (I may not have talked about lesson no. 1, either because I have already forgotten it, or it is NOT for public consumption…) when asked a question give some time before the answer, and don’t just go completely down the “road of first thoughts.”
If I don’t understand a situation, question, occurence…the recipe for finding flow and understanding singularly simple:
“WHAT IS THE BEST RESPONSE OR COURSE?”
WAIT AN ANSWER
(which can come in the form of a thought, an occurrence, a feeling, the wind, an animal, etc.)
(OK, I guess that’s four things not just a singularity…)
This particular situation involves cows. They tend to be in harmony with their surroundings. If there is no grass where they are standing, they move to where there is grass…when they are thirsty, they go where they think there is water.
Cows live everywhere
In the most beautiful spots
Do they know their wealth?
