I thought this the most accurate to go side by side with ideas conveyed within this movement.

In a romantic format - not absolutely era-or place-wise - but more with the idea of: work play love live squeezing all that can be squeezed in the way of an ideal world - it need not always have to be only a whim - stemming from a theory which highlights personal happiness as a seed arising largely from within, often seemingly without much help from the outside.

. . . Letting it all out . . .

There are some phrase anticipations occurring on the last eighth into the previous measure - introducing ~ leading into the next . . .

Turns and grace notes - well sometimes we use them more to depict sensitivity. Well yah - there are quite a few . . . maybe too many.

Download-enabled.

four minutes . . .

Sway to some 6/8.

For today at least, or for a while, blot out the negative.

T.H.A.W. should be the motto =
time heals all wounds.
Who can pass through time without some sort of injury ?
It's about time to get thaw doubt.

I'd better carry on before they carry me off.

I agree with Karen, this is very pretty and lovely. Evokes a very pleasant mood. The modulations catch me by surprise but they work well. Very nice!

Summer of '69....

an emotively and evocatively romantic arrangement depicting a time when, according to the Book of Ruth, a rich man of Bethlehem named Boaz, full of food and drink after barley harvest, lies down to sleep by the heap of grain on his threshing floor. At midnight he awakes with a start, and finds a woman lying at his "feet" (a euphemism for his sexual organs), which the woman has uncovered.

"Who art thou?" Boaz asks, not recognizing the woman in the dark.

"I am Ruth thine handmaid," she replies.

Ruth and Boaz first meet when Ruth is gleaning grain (as the poor are allowed to do) left behind by harvesters, in what happens to be Boaz's field.

On learning who she is, Boaz instructs his men to see that some grain is left for her, and to allow Ruth to glean "even among the sheaves" without reproach.

"Spread therefore thy skirt over thine handmaid," Ruth tells Boaz, "for thou art a near kinsman." To spread his skirt or cloak over her would signify taking possession and the term "near kinsman" translates the Hebrew word go'el ("redeemer")--a man who protects the heritage of a deceased relative by buying his property, and perhaps by marrying his widow.

Whether sexual intercourse takes place on the threshing floor is not stated, though it is noted that that threshing floors were associated with sexual activity, and that the Hebrew word for skirt (kanap) can also connote genitals, reinforcing the sexual subtext.

Boaz in any case has Ruth stay all night; she lies "at his feet until morning," though she leaves before its light enough for people to recognize each other.

The book highlights the virtue of maintaining integrity in one's life. The example of Boaz, who is of high stature not only based on his wealth, but also based on his benevolence

Both Boaz and Ruth are models of an altruism for which the word "loving-kindness" has been coined. They act in ways enjoined in both Jewish and Christian precepts, that promote the well-being of others which you have undoubtedly captured hear...

Though I am not sure the actual time period of "The Summer"...though as a Cancerian, 69 was the number that stood out, as was the pop song by Bryan Adams....
