Description
This is a little on the philosophical side. Not for stupids.....or those who choose to be.
Taken from its hidding place, stashed hundreads of years ago. The parchment of this text was sealed in a pillar of a old monestery the words are as prevelent now as they were then. Good Words to live with.

I know, I know the last verse in not in vocal tone sync with the rest. The logic board got so hot i had to walk away for a while and could not recapture the voice. The option was to redue it all again. It is the content not the porduction that counts w/ this. njoy, be at peace.

Lyrics
DESIDERATA
GO placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. Far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be grater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. Your a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Herefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive to be, and whatever your labors and aspiration; in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful, Strive to be happy

Go placidly...
I've always remembered and loved the Desiderata after
being forced by calligraphy teacher to write this out
endlessly until managed to finish it without smudging the
ink... the end result living on my toilet door for years.
Great to hear it here. Good rendition.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. It seems most everone is in to much
of a hurry for a simple word or two. You still do the calligraphy?

Thats one of my places of meditation too. I seem to be able to work out a lot
of the old s ruminats there as well.

Appreciate it!
Think it's art in it's truest form. I think you have a really good idea here. Yeah, it's not main stream, but I think it's Good speaking voice, by the way.

Quite a profound and insightful recital and some interesting background. It almost makes me want to take your recital and use it in a collaboration (i.e. your reading over other musical backing). This is not to suggest that the current backing is not at all appropriate, just that the thoughts expressed inspire a creative reply.
Thanks for this one,
Stephen
