Words in Pictures

 

Whitest light, to clear the sky

Cold light of day that brooks no lie

Chases fears - away they fly  

Day 1 - Pure light of early day Day 2 - Banish all shadows with the dawn Day 3 - Light of life, the rise and shine Day 4 - Glow memory in my heart Day 5 - God's gardener Day 6 - Who can doubt

 

About SPIRIT OF LIFE...

 

In Ancient Egypt, as the sun rose a singer would lead worshippers towards the temple raising her voice in praise of the supreme creator.

 

To be a temple musician to a particular god was a high status position in Egyptian society - and frequently held by women.

 

I wrote this song for

a woman, a piano...

and Last Call for Nefertiti  

 

asking myself,

how might a woman singing

to the sun god Amun Re, sound?

 

 

Follow the

next trail

 

Hazy summer days button Day 7 - Spirit of Light,  button

 

Treasure remembered golden hours

Gift of a summers day

 

Ready for action? Here's the sign

Soul of doing by design

Spirit of life shine on

Day 7 - Spirit of Light,  button

 

Glow memory in my heart

Never stray, never stray

 

Source of life, the fire that glows

Passion and power, from which all flows

 

Light of the world shine on
