Love Thursday - Skies

On our way down to Newport last year for our 10th anniversary, we ran across these beautiful clouds over the open road.  Sometimes we call these “Simpsons” clouds, because they look like the opening sequence of The Simpsons cartoon.  On this occasion, it was so peaceful to drive alone with Doug with no screaming kids in the back.  Driving away to a one of our sacred places, where we can relax, breathe and love.



During one of my walks at lunch, I was listening to a WNYC Radiolab short podcast, In C.
Not too long ago, Jad was invited to contribute to In C Remixed, a compilation of remixed versions of the 1964 Terry Riley piece that quietly changed the world of classical music (and eventually pop music too). In this podcast, Jad talks to musicians Michael Lowenstern and Zoe Keating about their remixes, what they did and why. Then Jad plays Robert his own kaleidoscopic remix of In C: minimalism as seen through the lenses of fatherhood and Radiolab.
I love Radiolab to begin with, but when they talk about music, it is music geek heaven.  During their interview with the always amazing Zoe Keating, she talks about the key of C major and how she never composes pieces in C (I totally agree , C major reminds me of Sonatinas from childhood).  She says, “I’m looking out the window right now and the sky is a that beautiful California blue.  And that is a C major sky.’”  I looked up myself and saw that I also had a beautiful C major sky.  I quickly snapped it on the iPhone and tweeted it as C major sky.



One of my favorite photos on Flickr is ≈ 2 sKy hEaRtS ≈, by the lovely and talented Jennifer Esperanza.  Ever since I saw it years ago, I have been searching the skies for heart-shaped clouds.  Finally on the way home from a business trip, I saw a heart cloud peeking out at me.  Hello heart, I love you!



Happy Love Thursday everyone, may your skies be filled with love.

lovely cloud. Lack of rain and there is no cloud on top of our head most of the time making the weather extreme dry and hot since Chinese New Year. We are hoping for rain here in Malaysia.
