Terry, Cathy and Jessie

We had dinner guests last night. Terry is leaving for China in a couple of weeks on a business trip and is excited about his first Asian adventure so he came over to chat with us about China.

We made him play the guitar for us too. We had been talking about James Taylor concerts in the Berkshires so he played a James Taylor tune for us.

The encore was from the Hidden Words that I wish I had also recorded.

"O MY CHILDREN! I fear lest, bereft of the melody of the dove of heaven, ye will sink back to the shades of utter loss, and, never having gazed upon the beauty of the rose, return to water and clay."
(Baha'u'llah, The Persian Hidden Words)

He played the version that has been set to music by Elika Mahoney "The Melody of the Dove of Heaven" (click to listen) from the beautiful CD Melodies of the Nightingale

More amazing guitar
