Extraordinary- Novel Nukem, now I get it. Glad you shared it.
Garden here is mostly cutting back the over growth of the neighbor which has built up against and over the fence for several years but mostly just regular plants and some herbs, the pond has some new plants in it Iris and some reeds to help with nitrate absorption, I pruned the rose bush which has managed to grow 10ft tall. Using it to block views into the house from the neighborhood.
Masterpiece is Indeed a piece of music, if you have heard anything by mike oldfield you’ll know what it should be like and why getting the composing right is akin to finding and zoning pure zen. Alas it doesnt come often but in spurts and since the “studio” is no longer physical as it used to be with thousands of dollars worth of synths, samplers and processing rack units, i can happily sit on the couch and compose with just a pen, fingers and whatever i want to record. My stuff generally appeals to people older than myself, quite traditional instrumentation and still learning to exploit whatever tech happens to come my way to make it.
Long post is long
