Music 151: Bugs in winter wood

This rather mundane photograph is of some of my wood stacked for winter. The music was inspired more by all the little bugs and beetles that hop around in it but I haven’t captured any on camera!

      Thanks, Lisa. I thought of you this afternoon while planting broad bean, celery, leek, peas, cabbages, caulis, b. sprouts and chard! These things like a good frost – but we don’t get snow – so they’re late winter early spring vegies.

    For once, I wished to be a beetle in the pile of winter wood, free of the shacles of a cruel world. The carriage of the main organ is graceful like a free flowing river, the beats, like ripples, buoyant and joyful. I could see a zillion bugs and beetles going busily about their business.

      You’d make a good bug! The tune actually has words, part of which (somewhere in the middle) goes:
      There’s bugs and beetles, slugs and sleetles,
      Slaters, huhus, wetas, bots,
      There’s crickets, earwigs, gnats and grubs,
      There’s blowflies, sandflies, locusts, moths.

            I fought with my father for nearly two decades to get that name changed. He didn’t relent. He said the name he had given me was the only thing that will last. Funny that he never thought I am also mortal. Ironically, the name has ended as middle names of my twins, courtsey the school they went to in Mumbai, who followed the age-old tradition here. Your name is great and I have usually been a fan of that first name –you only have to think of Mr Lee, Mr Springsteen, Mr Willis and Mr Goodman!

              That’s fascinating – the middle name of your twins especially. As a kid I told my mother that I disliked my name and she said “well change it”. Suddenly, I didn’t dare!

I delight in having my dull life coloured by your intelligent perceptions, your wit, and your vivacity.
