About the Music: Madis is a music lover from Krakow, Poland, his genre Trance, Electronic. If you wish to hear and know more about him follow the link https://madis-music.com/

About the Artist: Hülya Özdemir is an artist born in Istanbul, Turkey, (1972) who creates beautiful images halfway between art and illustration, with watercolors. She is a perfectionist colour hunter. Her paintings are timeless. Her portraits do not remain imprisoned in a single statement, their gazes are changing, just like us. One day in the same picture is sad, another day is possible to see a happy face. Flowers, plants, animals often create wonderful patterns and textures; sometimes minimalist, sometimes with strong references to Art Nouveau and in particular to Gustav Klimt. For more,visit her Instagram.

Always 🌎✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.

*Note: The storm videoclip was filmed from the upper deck of my home. The storm only grew in intensity as time moved on. Being this high on the mountain at times one has the feeling of being closer to God/Gods :). The song is Riders on the Storm by the Doors, however I chose the instrumental instead of the original. Always 🌎✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.

Thor is mostly associated with Norse methodology more so than Germanic, if you wish to learn more about Thor in all methodology I have provided a link

*Note: Koho Hiroshima was a Japanese Asian Modern & Contemporary artist who was born in 1889 and died in 1951. What I could gather was that he was a wood printmaker. There wasn’t much information that I could find about him, I would have liked to have seen more of his work. If any of you out there in blogger world can find more information on him, please let me know. Read the tanka, study the art, close your eyes visualize the image in your mind and listen to the music. Enjoy 🌎✌🏻❤️

*Note: I couldn’t have found a better piece of music to go with this. When you’re isolated you have to sometimes mix it up as they say.

Mountain Morning (tanka)*

wind pushes gently~

*Note: I’m sharing a video of my view this morning from our front deck. Enjoy the photos I’ve taken since moving to Tennessee. Enjoy the music below. 🌎✌🏻❤️

Old time mountain music, not everyone favorite genres. But I must say it is steeped in emotion, pain, joy and faith. I give you a few songs to listen to, they are rich in culture of mountain life.

Next a song of hope and faith.

Songs are passed down generations, always have a story.

If you’ve never seen the movie Cold Mountain which I watched just recently (set during the civil war) I recommend it, I thought I’d hate it and found that I enjoyed it. Here is a clip however it’s only a tiny part of the story.
