      Use Your Previous Feelings Of Success, To Have Now What You Desire Now! We’re talking about goals, and how to get what you want! We received an email from a friend of ours. He told us, “I’ve never succeeded in my life.” I’m here to tell you that you have. You’ve learned to walk, you’ve learned to drive, you’ve got a job, and you’ve clearly succeeded in some parts of your life. But what he’s saying is that he isn’t successful in a certain thing, he also said, “What’s t

        An illustrated reading of "The Fly" by William Blake followed by a slide choreography of Cesar Vuksic's PIANO MOODS. The images of the one become the artifacts of the other. THE POEM "The Fly" is from Blake's SONGS OF EXPERIENCE. The short lines correspond to the smallness of the subject but also, more importantly, to the shortness of its life, relative to ours, of course. The end-rhyme of the second and fourth lines testifies to Blake's wonderful sense of constraint: i.e., a little bit goes a long way. The triple-rhyme in the last stanza acts as a hammer-blow i.e., punctuation mark. Little Fly Thy summer's play, My thoughtless hand Has brush'd away. Am not I A fly like thee? Or art not thou A man like me? For I dance And drink & sing; Till some blind hand Shall brush my wing. If thought is life And strength & breath; And the want Of thought is death; Then am I A happy fly, If I live, Or if I die. THE MUSIC This monumental work was composed the day before Argentinian-born Cesar Vuksic died and was played some months later at a memorial concert by distinguished pianist Christopher Oldfather. Composer Richard Brooks has this to say about it: "PIANO MOODS consists of a theme and three variations. The theme comprises several low, slow single melodic lines alternating between the left and right hands and from very low to very high registers. An abrupt change to prestissimo tempo follows the long theme. Variation I is a reworking of the thematic material in a faster tempo, with more elaborate embellishments of the melodic line, which again alternates hands and registers. A loud, chordal, almost brutal phrase ends the variation. Variation II offers yet another elaboration of the theme with the addition of cluster chords and special sustaining pedal effects. After an accelerating passage of cluster chords, the opening mood returns. A long drawn out melodic line in the upper register leads to a reprise of the prestissimo interlude. The final variation reworks the theme in the left hand, now with contrapuntal figures added in the right. An accelerating passage into the middle register leads to a triumphant chordal ending. A brief coda echoing the prestissimo interlude concludes the work. PIANO MOODS is a rich sequence of contrasting emotional states that are clearly present in the score. The composer’s unique musical sensibility, exuberant humor, and nostalgic romanticism (note the reference to “What’s It All About, Alfie” near the end) speak wonderfully to the attentive listener." THE VISUALS These are basically digitized photos taken by me hither and yon over the years with my Canon EOS 7D and my earlier Nikon D-90, both with a 20 x 200 zoom lens. Once I scanned the photos, I edited and in some cases composited them in Photoshop, and then assembled the resultant digital images along with a video clip into a “show” in Proshow Producer.
