Thanksgiving music and pictures

Happy Thanksgiving 2015!

Like Barley Bending

from http://gregmitchellwriter.blogspot.com/:

“When Beethoven, late in his life, and fully deaf, survived a serious illness, he wrote a slow movement for one of his fabled final string quartets, calling it a  “convalescent’s holy song of Thanksgiving,”  now known as the Heiliger Dankgesang.  I am not alone in considering it one of  the greatest and most profound  pieces of music ever written.

Links for all art are at the bottom of the page.  Happy Thanksgiving for all who celebrate it.

because I say we rather than they
because I live in California
I have eaten fresh artichokes
and jacaranda bloom in April and May
because my senses have caught up with my body
my breath with the air it swallows
my hunger with my mouth
because I walk barefoot in my house
because I have nursed my son at my breast
because he is a strong American boy
because I have seen his eyes redden when he is asked who he is
