For Mary…

Mary, a long time reader of these pages, wanted to see some island flowers and to feel the touch of warm ocean breezes.

So here are some flowers. You’ll have to use your imagination for the ocean mist, as social-media technology has not evolved to the point of producing the sensation of having the Atlantic ocean embrace your skin with a sprightly tingle. You’ll also have to conjure for yourself the perfumed effect of passing under a Frangipani in early morning.

There’s so much work for the poor reader to do that I’m including some music–so much easier than having to imagine the abluent nature of warm sea water or the intense fragrance of certain tropical trees.

This is another take on the blithesome changes to Pachelbel’s Canon. And you are probably thinking to yourself–that’s the only piece he knows! And you’d be right. https://app.box.com/s/t9qavo3ktrpmhib4fk0i

Well almost. I also know this ethereal piece too…
