    4:30 a.m. everyone else is sleeping; it’s the only quiet, alone time for the busy mother of a brood. My mother used to do the same thing.

    I hear a lot of energy in this music, and variety; it’s hard and soft. It doesn’t end, it just stops.

    When I was teaching Bruce I used to get up at 4.30 am every day. It was my meditative time, my preparation for the day time and the only quiet time I got in 24 hours. I understand the early rising thing for busy people. I agree with Cynthia – there is also, I think, a happy quality to the music. The sudden stop is a little shocking!

    What a practical lady your Mum was. She obviously achieved a lot each day. My mother’s been gone seven and I remember she would start her day with a bhajan that she sang ( a bhajan is a devotional song).

    This sounds like Morris dancers who’ve had a few too many brew. My husband says it could be the theme music for a Morris dancer crime drama. We like it although It doesn’t sound maternal to me.

      LOL! Anyone who was going to do Morris Dancing must surely have had one too many even before starting!!! I tried to avoid the “maternal” bit – sort of avoid the strings and sentiment and just went for the … aha! Morris Dancing… or maybe the gin and tonic in the evenings!

    What a lovely tribute to your mother! I managed to sleep in until 5:30 when my kids were growing up – had to be out the door by 8, breakfasted, lunches made, homework gathered, sports equipment on board. Two schools to go to, and then work!

    A lively and fast paced tune, I can see your mother up and about tending to all the daily chores to the beat of this music: making beds, beating carpets, folding laundry, milking the cow, collecting the eggs, etc. etc. etc. Then finally flopping onto a chair at the musical full stop. Very nice tribute.
