Thank you all so much for your sweet comments on my last post sending our son best wishes on his birthday. Very much appreciated! Did you know that my son and husband are guitar players? They are very good and I hope one day to get one or both of them to play here for you, but in the meantime...
If you click on the video above you can listen to some beautiful music as you look at the photos from a beautiful November in Georgia, USA. The music is by a German Baroque composer by the name of Johann Pachelbel. You may read about him here. I wonder if he did ever meet Johann Sebastian Bach? It would be nice if they had met at a wedding (which is suggested in this Wikipedia article I have given you to read) since this piece of music is often played at weddings. For some reason, they have begun playing it just before Christmas. I just heard it on the radio today. (Nice music for Advent, perhaps?) Since my husband plays the guitar, he found this from Youtube for you and I am sharing it with you here. It is my hope that Richard will learn this and can play it for me whenever I ask it of him. And even though I don't know why it is considered to be for Christmas, I am glad that it is. Beautiful music is always welcome.
These photos were taken at Arabia Mountain, Panola Mountain and the Monastery of the Holy Spirit which are very close to me, all are within the Arabia Moutain National Heritage Area, a very special area which you may read about here!
Anybody who has read my blog for a while knows my love for Arabia Mountain and Stone Mountain, but I need to tell you about Panola Mountain, which we visited this weekend. That will have to wait for another post! In the meantime, thanks so much and welcome to my newest followers! I love the people who visit me as much as I love my beloved Arabia Mountain. Thank you! I love you all but I ADORE all of you who leave me comments!
(Sorry I have to keep using that word but I loved the way Andy Serkis said it in that clip I gave you from a recent post. I really mean it.)
That very last photo was of a small tree in our backyard and that was so bright on Thanksgiving morning that I just had to snap that photo very quickly before the sun moved away from it. And my header photo was also in the backyard, the bright Georgia sun makes everything warm and colorful.
