Fisherman on the Coast of the Sea, by Ivan Aivasovsky. I like the sun shining behind the clouds and through the waves. You almost feel like you shouldn't look at the sun - it's too bright. The aqua colors in the waves are so lovely!! What story do you think this painting tells?

Aaron Copland - Symphony for Organ and Orchestra
I'm not very familiar with Aaron Copland's music and I'm finding myself with mixed feelings about it - it feels a bit new age and unsettling to me. How about you - how does his music make you feel? It almost feels like it could be out of a movie, maybe even in a bit of a spooky scene sometimes and then it turns playful. It doesn't feel confident and resolving like Bach, Beethoven or Haydn. It makes me feel a bit edgy and unsettled - how about you?
Beautiful words by Carl Sandburg -
The monotone of the rain is beautiful,
and the sudden rise and slow relapse
Of the long multitudinous rain.
The sun on the hills is beautiful,
Or a captured sunset sea-flung,
Bannered with fire and gold.
