Greetings to All,


I would have also included a second quote... about the
pigeons lining up upon the wire... when John Blunt played...
had I the I.T. facility for such... but and alas... I am still
rather like a monkey with a cello... when it comes to such...
so I can but mention the pigeons here...

There is a rather wonderful old story (pub. 1920s?) by
Frank Stockton... entitled "Old Pipes and the Dryad"...
that brings these... and such things... into clearer view...

When we play outside... and perhaps even the more so...
when it is just as a single piper... we oft times can never
know... nor can it be gainsaid... what effect... the pipes
may have... upon any being... that may hear them.

Our forest friends... or some small child who may hear the
playing at a distance... and then some dozen or two years
later... again hear the playing... and know that that sound is
the one that they want to learn... how to make!!

And so... The Music... still progresses... "As the Old Chariot
Rolls Along"...

Regards... and Happy Piping... to All... :)
