i see the moon

and the moon sees me

and the moon sees someone

that i want to see



in thinking about essential songs
for jamie's life soundtrack at i.studio today 
i was pulled ...
pulled to the moon
in some strange, magical way ...

it wasn't intentional ...
just happens that music about the moon
is enthralling and spellbinding to me

i chose others for jamie's list ...
but these ~ these two selections are especially essential
to my love of music
sweetly gentle, quiet and soothing ... yet supremely clear and powerful
as the very light of the moon itself



. . .


. . .


what pulls you musically?

.

i see the moon and the moon sees me
and the moon sees someone i want to see
* you *

Oh, such beautiful songs! After I posted my list last week I kept thinking of other songs that should have gone on it - but thankfully some of you filled in the gaps! Clair de lune is one of my essentials too - so gorgeous!

Hello sweet angel, pg :)

Ollee here and just wanting to leave you a note about this mystical moon theme and its corresponding music. I love it! I have always been drawn to the moon: she seems so serene and steady. She changes her form from time to time, but she beautiful in every phase. I don't need to squint to look at her: I can admire her beauty for as long as I like without needing to look away. I've always thought of her as being the quiet counterpart of the sun; more subtle and demure yet just as powerful.

Now for the music…I love your choices! Audrey Hepburn is my all-time favourite actress and I remember the first time I saw the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's at our city's repertory cinema. I felt fortunate to have seen it on the big screen! She looked so gorgeous in those Givenchy black gowns! The glasses, the jewellery...oh so stunning! And how lovely she sang...thanks for posting that clip. Maybe Audrey personifies the moon, don't you think? That serenity, quiet beauty, so demure...

Oh...and Clare de Lune! I can’t forget that! My goodness: what a touching piece of music.

Thank you for always brightening my day with your beautiful posts!

Thank you for this- so lovely. I know you asked about music but your post reminded me of the last full moon that was so glorious- the moon was sooooo big and low in the sky that it took my breath away.

Happy weekend to you!! :)

just a very tender image with the sweet sounds .. every type of music touches me but having daughters that play viola and cello this is a special song to listen to this morning...thanks for sharing PG..happy musical weekend!! xo

PG, your images are always exceptional and this one is amazing! I too love moonlight and the beauty of the moon. Our family is blessed to live on a lake and have enjoyed the spectacular view of the rising moon across an expanse of frozen lake this winter. What a beautiful gift!

P.S. Do you use a tripod when taking low light shots like this? For that matter, do you always use one? I'm finding that I get some of my best shots using a tripod. Hate to drag it around, but.....

beautiful photo....even though the melting snow is what's making me smile today.....

and music....oh lord i couldn't be more eclectic if i tried. since i still have a teenage and music is something we love to share, i listen to everything from lady ga ga to rod stewart to eminem to josh grobin....really, everything somehow pleases me and makes me happy....well, for the most part. there is some god awful things that they try to pass off for music that i do have to turn off sometimes....

The photo is to-die-for! Love both the video's; I'm familiar with the Breakfast at Tiffany's selection, but the other performer is new to me - lovely! Thanks for sharing!

Love this post. I remember when I first saw this and had to go home and learn to play it on our piano. There IS such a lot of world to see and to live.

Thanks for your kind remarks on my painting of Abe.
