Speaking of birds, around where I live there are mainly crows, magpies, and pigeons. There are some power lines that a couple of them just sit on for an hour or 2, and a couple times there were about 5 or 6 crows that flew up on a very small section. On even rarer occasions there are some doves and seagulls that fly around, and a bald eagle whom I've seen about 3 times.

About a month ago, there where a couple birds that kept circling in the air above me. Not sure the name of them, but it was a cool sight. Another was when about 50-100 crows flew up in one of the very big trees around here. I have a couple bird books(1 I got fairly recently, the other 2 my parents had for a long time and just gave it to me.) Cannot say I am a professional birder, but observing birds can be pretty cool. If I ever travel, I would like to especially see those tiny owls. Forget the name of them though.

Thanks for your contributions yello! A bit of veriety there, so that's nice. Speaking of the Jazz trio you mentioned, where are they now? Still play sometimes around where you live?

i am like dave, a fan of most.  to me, music is one of the many gifts God has placed in His creation.

the first time i heard this, i wept uncontrollably:

yet another that brings me to tears:

then there is this jazz trio.  they used to play thursday nights at a bbq joint near me.  i got a chance to see them a dozen times, or so.  all three of them are world class jazz musicians. the drummer considered one of the best in the business.  i was five feet from the piano player the night this was filmed, and could be heard in the background:

and finally, although in no way a full representation of the music i enjoy, i post this group from chile:

I like to listen to some jazz while looking by my window at the swallows making a choregraphy « for me ». Very exhilarating 😊
There are a lot of swallows flying nearby my apartment, tweeting and dancing in the sky (I thank them for there are less mosquitos in my home, thanks God 😅)
It reminds me of this verse:
Isaiah 38:14: « Like a crane or a swallow, so did I chatter: I did mourn as a dove: mine eyes fail with looking upward: O LORD, I am oppressed; undertake for me. »

Hello Wanda 👋 Hello ML 👋
Thanks for those wonderful verses (well absolutely ALL bible’s verses are wonderful since Our Father in heavens is wonderful)
As for me, this part of Isaiah 30:15 always helps me, at anytime : « in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength. »

Yesterday evening there was a documentary on tv about the french soccer team who won the world soccer cup. It was pretty interesting showing the team throughout the competition.
All along the documentary two words were repeated by the coach or the players: « family » and « unity ». Beautiful concepts specific to sport’s mentality. AND firtsly to Our Family, God’s Holy Family!
It reminds me of this verse:
1Corinthians 9:25: « Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. »

During the documentary we heard, of course, the french national hymn « La marseillaise ».
I found the translation and it reveals itself very interesting. I’ve never really paid attention to it. But now I see some relevant things.
« Arise, children of the Fatherland,
The day of glory has arrived!
Against us tyranny
Raises its bloody banner
Do you hear, in the countryside,
The roar of those ferocious soldiers?
They're coming right into your arms
To cut the throats of your sons and women!
To arms, citizens,
Form your battalions,
Let's march, let's march!
Let the impure blood
Water our furrows!
What does this horde of slaves,
Of traitors and conjured kings want?
For whom are these vile chains,
These long-prepared irons?
Frenchmen, for us, ah! What outrage!
What fury must it arouse!
It is us they dare plan
To return to the old slavery!
To arms, citizens,
Form your battalions,
Let's march, let's march!
Let the impure blood
Water our furrows!
What! Foreign cohorts
Would make the law in our homes!
What! These mercenary phalanxes
Would strike down our proud warriors!
Great God! By chained hands
Our brows would yield under the yoke
Vile despots would have themselves
The masters of our destinies!
To arms, citizens,
Form your battalions,
Let's march, let's march!
Let the impure blood
Water our furrows!
Tremble, tyrants and you traitors
The shame of all parties,
Tremble! Your parricidal schemes
Will finally receive their reward!
Everyone is a soldier to fight you
If they fall, our young heroes,
The earth will produce new ones,
Ready to fight against you! »

There are more verses after that but those first ones are kinda speaking by themselves, don’t they? Well, not as good and inspiring as David’s psalms but I see that war’s a good source of inspiration when compared to the battles we, as children of God, have to fight in this eon for the Glory of God!

Yep, I like all those instruments too! Well, except the harmonica  ;)

Especially with guitar, I like some ambient effects on it. You may have heard some of it already, and I'll give more later that has it. "Computer generated" sounds I like too. Not all of them, but some.

Blues is too boring for me, but I like some Jazz! Although, that is a recent interest, so not too familiar with the genre.

Piano, Cello, Saxophone, Guitar, Harmonica. Those are the ones I enjoy solo. I like most string instruments, as well as wind too.

Here are some of my favourites:

Colossians 2 - Especially Vs. 14 & 15

1For I wish you to know how great a conflict I have for you and those in Laodicea, and as many as have not seen my face in the flesh,

2that their hearts may be comforted, being united in love, and to all riches of the full assurance of the understanding, to the full knowledge of the secret of the God and Father, and of the Christ,

3in whom are all the treasures of the wisdom and the knowledge hid,

4and this I say, that no one may beguile you in enticing words,

5for if even in the flesh I am absent — yet in the spirit I am with you, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in regard to Christ;

6as, then, ye did receive Christ Jesus the Lord, in him walk ye,

7being rooted and built up in him, and confirmed in the faith, as ye were taught — abounding in it in thanksgiving.

8See that no one shall be carrying you away as spoil through the philosophy and vain deceit, according to the deliverance of men, according to the rudiments of the world, and not according to Christ,

9because in him doth tabernacle all the fulness of the Godhead bodily,

10and ye are in him made full, who is the head of all principality and authority,

11in whom also ye were circumcised with a circumcision not made with hands, in the putting off of the body of the sins of the flesh in the circumcision of the Christ,

12being buried with him in the baptism, in which also ye rose with [him] through the faith of the working of God, who did raise him out of the dead.

13And you — being dead in the trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh — He made alive together with him, having forgiven you all the trespasses,

14having blotted out the handwriting in the ordinances that is against us, that was contrary to us, and he hath taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross;

15having stripped the principalities and the authorities, he made a shew of them openly — having triumphed over them in it.

Romans 14
8For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.

1 Peter 2
9and ye [are] a choice race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people acquired, that the excellences ye may shew forth of Him who out of darkness did call you to His wondrous light

Micah 7
8Thou dost not rejoice over me, O mine enemy, When I have fallen, I have risen, When I sit in darkness Jehovah is a light to me.

9The indignation of Jehovah I do bear, For I have sinned against Him, Till that He doth plead my cause, And hath executed my judgment, He doth bring me forth to the light, I look on His righteousness.

1 Peter 4
12Beloved, think it not strange at the fiery suffering among you that is coming to try you, as if a strange thing were happening to you,

13but, according as ye have fellowship with the sufferings of the Christ, rejoice ye, that also in the revelation of his glory ye may rejoice — exulting

14if ye be reproached in the name of Christ — happy [are ye], because the Spirit of glory and of God upon you doth rest; in regard, indeed, to them, he is evil-spoken of, and in regard to you, he is glorified;

15for let none of you suffer as a murderer, or thief, or evil-doer, or as an inspector into other men's matters

(Almost forgot!) Ephesians 3

1For this cause, I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for you the nations,
2if, indeed, ye did hear of the dispensation of the grace of God that was given to me in regard to you,
3that by revelation He made known to me the secret, according as I wrote before in few [words] —
4in regard to which ye are able, reading [it], to understand my knowledge in the secret of the Christ,
5which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it was now revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit —
6that the nations be fellow-heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of His promise in the Christ, through the good news,
7of which I became a ministrant, according to the gift of the grace of God that was given to me, according to the working of His power;
8to me — the less than the least of all the saints — was given this grace, among the nations to proclaim good news — the untraceable riches of the Christ,
9and to cause all to see what [is] the fellowship of the secret that hath been hid from the ages in God, who the all things did create by Jesus Christ,
10that there might be made known now to the principalities and the authorities in the heavenly [places], through the assembly, the manifold wisdom of God,
11according to a purpose of the ages, which He made in Christ Jesus our Lord,
12in whom we have the freedom and the access in confidence through the faith of him,
13wherefore, I ask [you] not to faint in my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
14For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15of whom the whole family in the heavens and on earth is named,
16that He may give to you, according to the riches of His glory, with might to be strengthened through His Spirit, in regard to the inner man,
17that the Christ may dwell through the faith in your hearts, in love having been rooted and founded,
18that ye may be in strength to comprehend, with all the saints, what [is] the breadth, and length, and depth, and height,
19to know also the love of the Christ that is exceeding the knowledge, that ye may be filled — to all the fulness of God;
20and to Him who is able above all things to do exceeding abundantly what we ask or think, according to the power that is working in us,
21to Him [is] the glory in the assembly in Christ Jesus, to all the generations of the age of the ages. Amen.

And, not to take up much more space, 2 others would be Psalm 22 - 23, and Romans 8.
