Nowness - by Richard Schletty


Drifting off in the mid-afternoon. So tired. Must rest my eyes. Delicious sleep...


A thunderbolt awakening, a raucous clap, eyes open wide, beholding a room full of resounding nowness.


A constant stream of sensory hooks binds me to the notion that I exist now and forever. My fancy soars as I imagine myself a rich entrepreneur, a powerful ruler,a vital movie star,or a spirit being.


The awful truth is that, despite my emollients, herbs, pimple cream and athletic strains, decomposition happens.


So heaves the tide of this soul awash in joy and sorrow, accord and discord, faith and despair, destined to leave this orb kicking!

Just wondering
Have you posted the correct version? I hear no lyrics, just ah-la-la ing. It's like they were a place-holder or some such. It's a nice composition though, all the same. A melange of Gershwin and Carl Orff maybe?

Yes, there is no real vocal yet and I am planning to create a better bounce with another library. This was done with the Sibelius sound library.
